Frontier Division Star of the Week: Arseny Ivanov, Defenseman, GF Americans
The Great Falls Americans kept their Frontier title hopes alive with a 7-1 win over Billings in their lone game of the weekend last week. Defenseman Arseny Ivanov, 20, had a big game as the native of Moscow, Russia, recorded two goals from the blueline including the game-winner in the win. Ivanov was also a +2 in the game. Ivanov (5’11”, 178) recently played in the 2016 Top Prospects Tournament for the Frontier Division team, where he had a great event with four assists in three games. In 36 games played this season, Ivanov has 19 points.
Great Falls Americans head coach Jeff Heimel: “Arseny is a true competitor. He plays well on both sides of the puck and last weekend showed his ability to play produce offensively. His plus/minus on the season reflects his completeness as a defenseman and we are excited by his performance so far this season.”
