You are socially aware, and you never back down from a challenge. Use the momentum you feel today to confidently begin your next challenge.

Immediately, he started to make an impact both offensively and defensively. Lukas scored in 9 of the last 12 games of the year. He had 4 goals and 14 assists for 18 points during that time.

Defensively, he was accountable, playing sound positional hockey to take away opponent’s time and space as well as being counted on in key situations to help the Huskies seal victories. Overall, this player was one of our top players down the stretch, his play help catalyzes those around him to play better and he was a key attribute to the success of the team. For his leadership, excellent play on the ice, and team first attitude, the February/March Athlete of the Month goes to Lukas Uhler.
