Christian Elsborg, Valley Jr. Warriors

The 1994 birth-year netminder from Duluth, Ga., backstopped the Junior Flyers to three victories this week by stopping 94.6 percent of the shots he faced. The victories included a shutout over Washington and an overtime triumph over the South Division-leading Little Flyers.
