True Hockey NAHL Goaltender of the Month: Liam Beerman, Anchorage Wolverines

Anchorage netminder Liam Beerman was incredible in between the pipes over the month of March. Beerman, a native of Marquette, MI, posted a perfect 6-0 record, allowing only 11 goals on 165 shots during the month, including a 32 shot shutout victory. Beerman’s time in net during March was good for a 1.83 goals against average and a .933 save percentage. This season, Beerman holds a25-8-4 record, a 2.37 GAA and a .923 SV%. 

“Over the month of March our team play, and specifically the play of Liam, has been outstanding winning every game he has started this month and helping our team to a stretch of 12 straight wins and a 17-game point streak,” Head Coach Nick Walters said. “When you have a goalie like that in net, it allows the rest of the team to play with a certain confidence. But I think a lot of the success starts before the puck even drops. It’s the scope of work he puts in each and every day, leading up to the weekend. His compete level in practice is always high, and it’s those little things that add up of the course of a year that have put him in this position.” 

“I would just say obviously a lot of things have been clicking for our team lately as we’ve been on this big point streak,” Liam Beerman said. “I think everyone has made it really easy on me to make saves most nights and hopefully we can continue that into the playoffs.”

Bauer Hockey NAHL Defenseman of the Month: Conner Brown, Janesville Jets

Janesville defenseman Conner Brown had a great month of March after appearing in 11 games. The Maplewood, MN native combined for 17 points during March, where he scored a goal and handed out 16 assists while maintaining a +2 rating. The Ferris State University commit is the NAHL’s top point-producing defender with 67 points in 53 games played this season. 

“Conner has continued to have a great year for us,” Head Coach Joe Dibble said. “He has achieved so much this season and it’s great to see him get recognized for this award. He is obviously very gifted in his abilities to run a powerplay and create offense, but it’s the defensive growth in his game that has been a big part to our success. He has focused a lot this year on his defensive play and being a leader. It’s been fun to watch him evolve into the player he is.”

“I’m super excited to be getting defenseman of the month again, I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and my coaches,” Conner Brown said. “I’ve been pretty fortunate to play with the teammates I have this season. They have continued to believe and push me to be better everyday and that is a huge reason not only for my success, but most importantly the success of our team.”

Bauer Hockey NAHL Forward of the Month: Dominik Bartecko, New Jersey Titans

New Jersey forward Dominik Bartecko owned the month of March where he appeared in 10 games. Bartecko, 20, a native of Brentwood, TN, was an enormous contributor for the Titans’ team success as the Titans finished the month with an 8-2 record. Bartecko combined for an outstanding 24 points in March with 9 goals and 15 assists. The Mercyhurst University commit is the fourth highest scoring forward in the NAHL with 76 points. 

“Dom was dominant throughout the month of March for our team,” Head Coach Craig Doremus said. “He was the leader for us day to day and raised his own level as well as those around him. Dom has worked day to day to improve his game and he has really pushed himself to become the best version of himself. He is going to be a heck of a college hockey player but until then we are lucky to have him here in New Jersey. We can’t wait to see him finish the regular season and then lead us into the playoffs.”

“I’m excited to receive forward of the month, but credit goes to my teammates,” Dominik Bartecko said. “We have been on a roll this last half, and we are playing with tons of confidence and swagger. All focus is going into these next couple weeks come playoff time, and I can’t wait to see what this group brings to the table.”
