Every week, chicagoblackhawks.com will highlight players who stood out for their minor-league, junior, college or European teams in the previous week's action. All prospect/system stats will be updated weekly throughout the season.
1st Star: LW Dylan Sikura, Northeastern (NCAA)
The Line: 2 GP, 3G, 1A
Sikura's offensive play was a highlight in Northeastern's back-to-back victories over Massachusetts this past weekend. The Hobey Baker hopeful tallied two goals in a tilt for the sixth time this season, including the game-winner, in a 3-2 win over the Minutemen in their first matchup. He followed up that performance with another goal and the game-winning assist to down UMass 7-2 one night later. Sikura leads the Huskies with 32 assists on the season while his +23 and overall points (52) rank second for the squad.
2nd Star: RW Matheson Iacopelli, Indy (ECHL)
The Line: 2 GP, 3G
Iacopelli registered a trio of goals over the Fuel's past two games and was credited with the game-winner in both matchups. He recorded his third multi-point effort in the ECHL with two goals in a 5-2 victory over Cincinnati. The winger picked up another goal in overtime against Kalamazoo to give Indy their second win of the weekend. Iacopelli's nine goals in nine games with the Fuel have earned him a call-up to the Rockford IceHogs, where he took the ice a night after recording his second game-winning goal in as many games.
3rd Star: D Chad Krys, Boston University (NCAA)
The Line: 2 GP, 1G, 2A
Krys was monumental in the Terriers overtime win over UConn. The defenseman collected a pair of assists and also the game-tying goal with less than four minutes to play in the tilt, forcing overtime where BU emerged victorious. The performance gives Krys 25 points (7G, 18A) for the season.
