NA3HL Player of the Month (Goaltender of the Month):
Drew Scites, GF Americans
The Great Falls Americans are getting hot at the right time as they have won eight of their last 10 games. Spearheading their charge into the postseason is goaltender Drew Scites. During the month of February, Scites has been simply sensational. Most award winners usually have that one signature performance that sets them apart from everyone else. In the case of Drew Scites, he has three such outings. He started the month with a 56 save win against the Yellowstone Quake, he allowed just one goal in a 2-1 overtime win. Then on February 23rd, once again versus the Quake, Scites stopped a season high 64 shots in another 2-1 overtime victory. He followed that game up, with a 45 save shutout to clinch a series sweep of the Frontier Division leaders.
Great Falls Americans head coach Jeff Heimel: “Drew has made an immediate impact since he arrived here. He’s a competitor that has a wealth of experience and a guy that is well liked by his teammates,” said Great Falls Head Coach Jeff Heimel. “Were excited to see what he can do for us in the playoffs.”
