The AHF announces the Players of the Week for the week ending January 22nd, 2023. The Players of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2022-23 season that honors players in all divisions. Only players that are nominated by their respective teams are considered.
Age Level / Division: 10A
Team: Royals White
Player: Carter Herring (F) – Games: 2, Goals: 2, Assists: 0
“Carter had two timely goals this weekend to try and push his team in the right direction. On Saturday he scored with 32 seconds remaining in the first period that was controlled by the Blazers. Although the team lost, he provided the spark to wake his team up and even out the chances. On Sunday morning, Carter scored 32 seconds into the game to show his team that Saturday’s loss was behind them. He has been a dynamic player all season and brought an intensity to his game this weekend that motivated the rest of the bench.” said Coach Shawn McMullen.
Age Level / Division: 10AA
Team: VFC Colonials
Player: Liam Doyle (F) – Games: 1, Goals: 3, Assists: 0

Age Level / Division: 12A
Team: Royals 12U 2010
Player: Colton Dreyfus (F) – Games: 3, Goals: 6, Assists: 0
“Colton was an absolute sniper this weekend. He had six goals in only 3 games which is a huge accomplishment, especially considering the short lineup we had. He fought through adversity and had to log a ton of minutes due to our roster size. He led by example and made some big plays for us throughout the weekend.” said Coach Patrick Porkka.
Age Level / Division: 12AA
Team: Palmyra Black Knights
Player: Jackson Gladwish (D) – Games: 4, Goals: 0, Assists: 0

Age Level / Division: 13AA
Team: Valley Forge Colonials
Player: Brock Larkin (F) – Games: 3, Goals: 1, Assists: 1

Age Level / Division: 14A
Team: WBS Jr. Knights
Player: Mattingly van den Berg (D) – Games: 1, Goals: 0, Assists: 1
“Mattingly is the type of player on your team who doesn’t always get the recognition he deserves. He logs a ton of minutes and plays out of position when asked. He has a ton of different partners and he does everything he is asked with a smile, confidence, and a great attitude. He works so hard and it’s paying off as he is getting consistently better. He’s a great locker room guy, everyone loves him on and off the ice and he’s great to coach.” said Coach Ryan Sheehan.
