Jets' goaltender Kalinowski earns weekly NA3HL honors
The North American 3 Hockey League today announced the Divisional Stars of the Week, presented by Easton, for the week ending September 8, 2013.
The divisional stars of the week is an award given each week of the regular season to the top performing players in each of the four divisions of the NA3HL as nominated by their head coaches.
East Division Star of the Week: Trevor Kalinowski, goaltender, Metro Jets
Kalinowski helped the Jets to a weekend road sweep of the Pittsburgh Vengeance during the opening weekend of the NA3HL regular season this past weekend.
Although he only played in Sunday’s 3-2 win, the native of Commerce Township, Mich., was spectacular in goal. The 17-year-old Kalinowski (5-foot-9, 155 pounds) stopped 46 of 48 shots that came his way to help the Jets complete the weekend sweep.
“Trevor was great on Sunday. We won the game because of him. He is a returning player that we are going to rely heavily on,” said Jets' head coach Jason Cirone. “I think to go into Pittsburgh and sweep them was a little bit surprising, but we gave a really good effort and I think everyone worked really hard.”
2nd Star: Cooper McLean, forward, Metro Jets
