JR. DUCKS PRODUCT, LA HABRA NATIVE HARGUINDEGUY SELECTED NAHL FORWARD OF THE MONTH
The NAHL announced today that Minot Minotauros forward Joseph Harguindeguy has been named the Bauer Hockey NAHL Forward of the Month for October.
Joseph Harguindeguy, 19, had a solid and consistent month of October as the native of La Habra helped his team to a 4-0-2 record during the month with nine points (five goals, four assists) in six games played. That included recording at least a point in all six games, two multi-point games and one game-winning goal.
This is Harguindeguy’s third season in the NAHL. In 95 career regular-season games, he has recorded 41 career points.
“I couldn’t be any happier for Joseph,” Minot head coach Shane Wagner said of the Anaheim Jr. Ducks graduate. “The kid has put in his time and is being rewarded on the score sheet. Coming to the season, we lost a lot of scoring up front and he took the opportunity and ran with it. He plays in every situation and I’m sure some school will land one hell of player.”
“I felt like after the first weekend, I felt pretty good about myself and my game,” added Harguindeguy. “I think everyone came together really well and we felt like we had a very good team with good chemistry to start the season. I think this year, I want to lead by example and be the guy that my teammates can look to for production and leadership. I think the ultimate goal remains to win a Robertson Cup.”
Only players who are nominated by their respective teams are considered for the NAHL monthly awards.
