Runners Take South Stars Of The Week
Topeka RoadRunners forward Sly Sutter was awarded the Easton South Division Star of the Week for his efforts in the series sweep over the Corpus Christi Ice Rays this past weekend. Teammate Tyler Poulsen received the second star for the South.
From NAHL.com: "With two wins in Corpus Christi this past week, the Topeka RoadRunners climbed closer to 1st place in the South and continued their recent hot streak of going 11-1-2 in their last 14 games. 19-year-old forward Sly Sutter paced the offense this past weekend as the RoadRunners put up 11 goals in the two wins. On Thursday, the native of Warren, Michigan, scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in a 4-0 shutout of the IceRays. On Friday, Sutter (5'9/170) had two goals and assisted on Topeka's game-tying goal with less than a minute remaining in regulation as Topeka grasped a 7-6 win in overtime. In the two wins, Sutter had three goals and two assists for five points and was also a +3. In 39 games this season, Sutter has 20 points (9 goals, 11 assists). "Sly has been one of those guys that has been consistently improved since day one of the season. He adds a lot to our offensive depth and he has been really good on the power play," said RoadRunners head coach Scott Langer."
