Fort Collins’ Bradshaw, Longmont’s Gonzalez tabbed USPHL monthly award winners
The USPHL has announced its monthly player honors, with a pair of Colorado products earning awards for September-October.
Bold City Battalion forward Kelton Bradshaw is the Florida Premier Division Forward of the Month, while the Tampa Bay Juniors’ Lucas Gonzalez is the Florida Elite Division Defenseman of the Month.
Bradshaw, an ‘05 out of Fort Collins, started on fire out of the gate with a five-game scoring streak and also enters November on a four-game run of points.
He has been a big contributor to the expansion Battalion standing at second in the division off the bat. He has posted six goals and 11 assists for 17 points in 12 games.
Bradshaw is just one point from equaling his 30-game output from last year with the former Northern Colorado Eagles.
Back home, Bradshaw played for the Colorado Thunderbirds and Rocky Mountain RoughRiders.
A second-year USPHL veteran, Gonzalez, a 2004-born Longmont native, has certainly found the perfect home in Wesley Chapel, Fla.
He is the ice time leader for Tampa Bay, averaging 22:48 per game, and he is second in plus-minus at plus-15.
Gonzalez has helped himself out in that respect by posting four goals and seven assists for 11 points in his 13 games so far.
During his youth hockey days, Gonzalez played for the Hyland Hills Jaguars.
