“I feel pretty good and honored to have received the award for this week as it came down as a big

surprise to me when I found out,” said Brodzinski.  “I just tried my best to help the team as much as

possible over the weekend, and hopefully we can regroup for the nice long stretch of home games coming up and make a deep push for the Clark Cup Championship.”

This season, Brodzinski leads all USHL defenseman with 14 goals.
