Bruins’ Dickman named player of the weekPublished 6:25pm Monday, October 22, 2012
Bruins forward Jay Dickman was selected NAHL Central Division Star of the Week for this past weekend’s games.
As one of the biggest players in the league, Dickman, 19, showed his offensive touch this weekend as he helped his first place Bruins take three of four points in a weekend series at Bismarck against the Bobcats.
For the weekend, the native of Shoreview, Minnesota, had four points (4 assists) to lead the Bruins. On Friday, he recorded two assists and five shots in a 4-3 overtime loss. The next night, Dickman, who is 6-6 and weighs 225 pounds, again would record two assists in a 4-3 win.
For the season, Dickman has nine points in seven games played.
“Jay is a big guy that protects the puck well,” said Bruins head coach Chris Tok. “For his size he has great hands and vision. Although he is big, he would prefer to be creative on the offensive side rather than be just a physical forward. He really set up his teammates nicely this weekend.”
