Trevor Zegras (Bedford, N.Y.) earned his first USHL Forward of the Week honor the league announced today after recording seven points over two games last weekend.
Zegras scored his first goal of the season and added three assists in Team USA's 8-3 victory on Saturday in Muskegon before picking up his second goal in as many nights and dishing out two more helpers to help the U18s to another 8-3 victory on Sunday, this time at home against Dubuque.
In three USHL games this season, the Boston University commit has tallied seven points (2G, 5A), second among all U18s players to Cole Caufield, while his 2.33 points-per-game leads all USHL players.
Zegras is in his second USHL season after making a name for himself during the 2017-18 campaign. He recorded 32 points (11G, 21A) in 31 games to help Team USA earn the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings. He also tallied six points (1G, 5A) in eight Clark Cup Playoffs games, helping Team USA reach the Eastern Conference Final.
Zegras was listed as an A-rated skater on the NHL Central Scouting Preliminary Players to Watch list earlier this month. Before joining Team USA, Zegras skated for Avon Old Farms (USHS).
Other winners included Sioux City Musketeers defenseman Luke Johnson and Isaiah Saville of the Tri-City Storm was named Goaltender of the Week for the second time in three weeks. Johnson scored a goal on Friday and dished out four assists on Saturday, and Saville made 25 saves on 26 shots to lead Tri-City to a shootout win in his only start of the weekend. The USHL is America’s only Tier 1 junior hockey league, and continues to lead the world in the advancement of players to Division I college hockey.
