Colorado natives Goble, Lajeunesse collect monthly USPHL accolades


A pair of Colorado products has picked up USPHL Player of the Month honors for December.

New York Aviators goalie Ashton Goble (Colorado Springs) is the Mid-Atlantic Elite Division Goaltender of the Month and Northern Cyclones forward Sean Lajeunesse (Littleton) is the North Elite Division Forward of the Month.

Goble, a 2004 birth year, was a great pickup for the Aviators out of Doherty High School in Colorado Springs. He had his best month yet when he went 3-0-0 through December, stopping 113 of the 118 shots he faced for a .950 save percentage and a 2.00 goals-against average. He made 40 saves in consecutive wins against the Rockets Hockey Club and Jersey Hitmen, and he also stopped 33 of 34 against the Elmira Jr. Enforcers.

From the Elite team with the best winning percentage (.935, off a 21-1-1-0 record) and best current winning streak – 9-0 – comes Lajeunesse, another this ‘04 birth year.

Lajeunesse was gigantic in December, posting five goals and seven assists for 12 points in just eight games. He leads the Cyclones in goal scoring with 17 goals and is second in points with 28. Two of his three game-winning goals came in December, the other being registered in the final November game.

During his youth hockey days, Lajeunesse started with the Littleton Hawks and later played for the Arvada Hockey Association and Foothills Hockey Association before Dakota Ridge High School and back to Littleton for his 18U season.
