The Superior International Junior Hockey League announced Monday that Julius Tamasy of the Duluth Clydesdales has been named the opening Pizza Hut player-of-the-week for 2011.
In three games this past week, the 20-year-old Duluth native racked up eight points on two goals and six assists.
Tamasy registered an assist in his team’s final game of 2010 versus the Fort Frances, then piled up seven points in helping the Clydesdales sweep a pair of games against the visiting Thunder Bay North Stars over the weekend.
He notched the tying goal and set up two others, including the game-winner, in a 5-2 Duluth triumph on Saturday.
He followed that up by scoring again, while assisting on the deciding marker as well as dishing out two other helpers, in a 7-5 victory Sunday evening.
The forward also extended his consecutive game point streak to seven-straight contests, registering registered 13 points, including three goals, over that span.
For his on-ice efforts, Tamasy will receive a gift card courtesy of Pizza Hut.
Honourable mention for the Pizza Hut player-of-the-week award went to Wisconsin Wilderness defenceman Nathan Paulsen, Fort Frances Lakers’ forward Zach McCool, and Thunder Bay North Stars’ forward Spencer Hogan.
Both Dryden and Sioux Lookout had no nominees as they did not play last week.
