Zachary LaDuke of Greater Latrobe, Brandon Savka of Central Catholic, Kyle Miller of Thomas Jefferson and Ryan Radovic of Taylor Allderdice are being honored tonight by the Pittsburgh Penguins as Highmark High School Hockey Players of the Month for January.
The Penguins and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield honor high school players of the month four times each season.
LaDuke, a senior forward, exploded for 10 goals and 20 points in five games as Greater Latrobe went 5-0. Already a member of three state championship teams, he is the leading scorer in the AA division of the PIHL with 27 goals and 24 assists.
Savka, a senior goaltender, posted a 2.33 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage in leading Central Catholic to a 4-2 record. He made 46 saves in a 1-0 shutout of Erie McDowell.
Miller, a junior defenseman, rang up five goals and 10 points in five games for Thomas Jefferson. Although he is a talented forward in travel hockey, he switched to defense this season to help his high school team and serves as an assistant captain.
Radovic, a senior forward, scored six goals in five games for Taylor Allderdice, including a hat trick against Blackhawk. He serves as team captain and, in addition to his leadership, scored 60 percent of his team’s goals for the month.
The Penguins are proud supporters of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL), as well as all local amateur hockey.
