Colorado Springs product Leifer takes home top weekly honor from EHL Premier
The EHL Premier announced today that Walpole Express forward Samson Leifer has been named a Top Performer for Week No. 21.
Leifer and the Express returned to action and won three of their five total games this past week. After getting shut out by the Boston Jr. Rangers on Wednesday, Leifer helped lead the way to a three-win week with five goals and two assists in the five total games.
For the season, the 2002 native of Colorado Springs now has 22 points (13 goals, nine assists) in 30 games.
Walpole will be the No. 3 seed in the upcoming Central Division playoffs, drawing a rematch with the Railers Jr. Hockey Club, the same opponent that the Express faced off against in last year’s postseason.
Prior to junior hockey, Leifer played for Fountain Valley School.
