Szczurek named Central Star of the Week

Central Division Star of the Week: Jeremy Szczurek, defenseman, Chicago Jr. Bulldogs

Newly acquired defenseman Jeremy Szczurek, 18, has been a very nice addition for the Bulldogs and that was evident again this past weekend. The native of Algonquin, Illinois helped Chicago take five of six points in three home games and made a significant impact from the blueline. On Friday, Szczurek (6’0/175) had a goal and assisted on two others as Chicago edged Wisconsin, 5-4. After going without a point in Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Minnesota, Szczurek returned on Sunday by scoring the game-winning goal with just one second remaining in overtime and also adding an assist in a 5-4 win. For the week, Szczurek had five point and was a +5. “Jeremy has been a really nice fit since he has been here and can be an elite defenseman,” said Chicago head coach Tom Clarke. “He is still young, but smart and solid at both ends of the ice. He has a good shot and great instincts.”
