For the month of December 2020
NA3HL Player of the Month (Goaltender of the Month):
Trever Mellen, GF Americans
Mellen was busy between the pipes in December, seeing just four starts but facing an average of 41 shots per game as he went 3-1-0 with one shutout on the month. Mellen opened things up with an eye-catching 48-save effort against Helena on the 4th before turning aside 30 pucks in his only December defeat a week later. Another 49-save win over Gillette and a 31-save goose-egg against Butte solidified Mellen’s claim to this month’s honors, though, as the Americans’ steady netminder posted a stingy 1.51 GAA and .963% save percentage in December. On the year, Mellen boasts a 14-3-0 record and two shutouts to go with a 2.17 GAA and a .939% save percentage that ranks fifth among NA3HL goaltenders.
NA3HL Forward of the Month (Honorable Mention):
Jake Hayes, GF Americans
NA3HL Defenseman of the Month (Honorable Mention):
Tommy Janes, GF Americans
