Bauer Hockey NAHL Forward of the Month: Tyler Grahme, Wisconsin Windigo

Wisconsin forward Tyler Grahme was on fire during the month of February in the 8 games he played in. Grahme, 19, a native of Bloomington, MN was a major factor in the Windigo’s team success as they went 6-2 in February. Grahme scored an outstanding 9 goals and dished out 5 assists for 14 points on the month. The Dartmouth College commit is the second leading scorer for Wisconsin with 59 points in 48 games played. “Tyler has had a really nice year for us and has been an integral part of our success so far,” Head Coach Blake Hietala said. “He’s taken a huge step offensively this season and is being rewarded on the scoresheet, but the leadership and other areas he excels in, like faceoffs, are so important to our team. I’m glad he’s getting rewarded for another good month.”

“I’m honored to have received the award but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of my teammates,” Tyler Grahme said. “The team this month has been on a roll. WE have a lot of confidence as a team and play with swagger. The focus heading into the playoffs for us is making sure that we dial in our details and consistency.”

This season, Klemm has played in 46 games where he’s combined for 34 points. “Lukas had an outstanding month of February just as he has had all season for us,” Head Coach Mike Letizia said. “He had points in every game and was a rock for us on our back end playing heavy, heavy minutes.  Since becoming a Tomahawk, Lukas has been everything we hoped he would be and more for our team on and off the ice. Additionally, he had a great two games in Pittsburgh at Top Prospects for Team East. His commitment to Mercyhurst was the icing on the cake for a great month individually, and certainly a well-earned and deserved accomplishment for everything he has done this season.”

“I’m very honored to receive Defenseman of the Month,” Lukas Klemm said. “I have had an amazing experience with the Tomahawks. I could not be happier with how far we all have come since the beginning of the season, and I couldn’t thank our coaches enough for everything they have done for all of us. As a team, we need to continue to win as many games as possible, and make sure we don’t lose any games we shouldn’t. We’ve put ourselves in a good spot since Christmas and we need to continue to build off of that into and through the playoffs.”

If he hits a rough patch you wouldn’t know it as he handles himself like a pro. He’s mature past his years with his game and his attitude. Coach Rich and him have worked hard at fine tuning his game and it has paid dividends so far.”

“This honor means a lot to me as there are so many good goalies in this league and the South division,” Eliot Seguin-Lescarbeau said. “It is a personal honor, but I couldn’t have done it without the help of my teammates. Our team had a good month of February and the guys played very well in front of me in both areas of the ice. We have been able to win very close games as most of our games went in overtime. We are happy and ready to give it all for the rest of the season and excited about the playoffs.”
