Hyland Hills alum, Longmont native Gonzalez brings home monthly USPHL honors


The USPHL has announced that Tampa Bay Juniors blueliner Lucas Gonzalez is the Florida Elite Division Defenseman of the Month.

Gonzalez, an ‘04 out of Longmont, put up a strong month with a 3-8-11 line in nine games, while also skating an average of 19:50 per game for the Florida Division-leading Juniors. That was good for second on the team, and his plus-7 rating last month was good for second among the Tampa Bay defense.

Gonzalez split his time between the Premier and Elite last season and has been a great staple for the Juniors who are on a five-game winning streak. He has 31 points in 37 games this year.

During his youth hockey days, Gonzalez played for the Hyland Hills Jaguars.
