Parker native, Chaparral High graduate Herz selected NA3HL Defenseman of the Month
Sheridan Hawks blueliner Simon Herz has been named the NA3HL Defenseman of the Month.
Herz now sits atop the NA3HL defensemen scoring ranks after a stellar January.
The 2001-born Parker native paced all blueliners with four goals and 13 points in 10 games in January, inflating his league-leading scoring totals to nine goals and 38 points in 26 games.
Herz’s offensive consistency was unrivaled last month — he recorded points in eight of 10 games, and multiple points in four of those — yet his defensive game did not suffer. Herz was a plus-player in eight games, and never rated lower than even in January, en route to a month-long mark of plus-20.
With his top-class play on both sides of the puck, Herz was a key figure in the Hawks’ journey to a mark of 24 straight wins reached in January, and figures to lead their back end towards championship aspirations.
During his youth career, Herz skated for the Colorado Evolution and for Chaparral High School (pictured).
