Bears have quiet day at Top Prospects

In a game pitting Kenai River Brown Bears against each other, Midwest beat the North American Hockey League Selects 4-1 on Monday at the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Tyler Andrews, Maurin Bouvet and Jack Gessert of the Bears were on Midwest, while Bears forward Tanner Schachle is on the NAHL Selects. None of the four had a point in the game.

In other games, Central topped North 4-1 and Team USA 18U defeated South 9-2.

The tournament concludes today when North takes on Midwest at 7 a.m. AST, South takes on Central at 10 a.m. AST and Team USA 17U takes on NAHL Selects at 1 p.m. AST.

Gessert also was named an Easton Central Division Star of the Week on Monday.

Gessert, who is 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, had an assist in Friday’s 3-1 loss to the Johnstown (Pennsylvania) Tomahawks. He then had four goals, including the game-winner in overtime, in a 6-5 Saturday win. Gessert now has 41 points in 41 games, including 26 goals.

“Through a tough season, Jack has stuck with it and risen to the occasion and this past weekend was a great example,” Kenai River head coach Geoff Beauparlant said in a released statement. “He is a leader on our hockey team and would be a nice addition to any NCAA Division I program.”
