Hockeywolf.com has named Flyers Goaltender Mark Becica this week’s 3rd star.
Becica has helped the Flyers obtain 9 of a possible 10 points in their last five games since joining the team a little over two weeks ago.
He played strong in his first weekend as a Flyer two weeks ago against the Ontario Avalanche, posting a 1.50 GAA and .948 save percentage, including a shutout in his first start, during the two game weekend series, which the Flyers swept.
This last weekend Mark continued to play well as he helped lead the Flyers to 5 of a possible 6 points against the Lake Tahoe Blue, who were the runners-up for the AAU National Championship last season.
With the strong weekend performance Becica improved his record to 4-0-1 on the season posting a 2.90 GAA and .894 save percentage, helping the Flyers to pick up 5 much needed points as they look to make it to the playoffs for the 3rd straight season and challenge for the Thorne Cup.
Zach Paxman, 3G and 3A on the weekend, was given honorable mention status.
The Flyers next game is on November 16 at 8PM as they head out on the road to take on the Ontario Avalanche.
