NA3HL names MacKinnon its 1st Star

The North American 3 Hockey League today announced the Three Stars of the Week, presented by Combat Hockey. 

The Three Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2011-12 regular season that honors the top performing players each week of the regular season as nominated by their respective teams.

1st Star: Mike MacKinnon, forward, Metro Jets

Troy native Mike MacKinnon, 19, had a good couple of games last weekend for the Metro Jets. 

On Friday, MacKinnon recorded an assist as Metro defeated Battle Creek, 3-2. 

Then on Sunday at the first day of the 3HL East Showcase, MacKinnon had himself a career game as he recorded six points (three goals, three assists) in an 8-3 win over Michigan.  The six points tied a 3HL season-high and the memorable game took place in MacKinnon’s hometown. 

MacKinnon is tied for the Metro scoring lead with Steve Klisz, both with 61 points, while his 40 assists rank third in the 3HL.

The 2nd Star was Chicago Hitmen goalie Joe Olen and 3rd Star was Minnesota Flying Aces forward Liam Johnston.
