Pair of RoughRiders 18U standouts pick up monthly NAPHL awards
The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) has announced its Apex Learning Virtual School Peak Performers for the month of December and a pair of Rocky Mountain RoughRiders 18U AAA players picked up honors.
The players were selected based upon their performance at the fourth NAPHL event of the season, which took place in Blaine, Minn., from Dec. 3-5, 2016.
18U Apex Peak Performer (Defense) – Adam Millar, Rocky Mountain RoughRiders
Millar was solid at the December event in Blaine as the native of Westminster chimed in with five points (all assists) from the blue line.
Millar posted at least a point in all four games as the RoughRiders posted a perfect 4-0 record at the event and moved into first place in the 18U Division. Millar was also selected to and played in the 2016 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game, where he had two assists on Team Suter.
His 18 points in NAPHL play are tops for all 18U defensemen so far this season.
#2 Star: Ethan Prout, Rocky Mountain RoughRiders
18U Apex Peak Performer (Goaltender) – Cisco Clark-Silva, Rocky Mountain RoughRiders
Clark-Silva made his appearances in Blaine count for the first-place RoughRiders as the native of Boulder appeared in two of the four games for the team and posted wins in both.
On Saturday, Clark-Silva made 14 saves in a 4-1 win over HC Dallas. On Sunday morning, he stopped all 21 shots that came his way in a 4-0 shutout of the Thunder Bay Kings.
Clark-Silva, who is tendered by the NAHL’s Topeka RoadRunners, also played in the 2016 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game, where he did not give up a goal and made 16 saves in one half of action.
