Andrew Martell gets rookie nod for September

The Mariners’ Andrew Martell has been named the MHL’s Pro Design Cresting Rookie of the Month for September.

In seven games, the 18 year old from Dartmouth scored twice and added seven assists in helping Yarmouth record a perfect 7-0 record during the month.

After going scoreless in his first two games of the season, Martell caught fire with a five-game point streak to close out the month.

One of the highlights of Martell’s month came during the last game of September when he earned first star honours following a two-goal performance in a 5-2 victory over the Dieppe Commandos at home on Sept. 30.

A third-round selection of the Mariners in the 2015 MHL Entry Draft, Martell is a graduate of the Cole Harbour Wolf Pack program in the Nova Scotia Midget AAA League. With the Wolf Pack last season, he finished tied for third in the league in regular season scoring with 48 points in 38 games while adding on 16 points in 10 postseason games.

 

Leif Hertz named MHL first star for September

The MHL has announced its Gongshow Three Stars of the Month for September and at the top of the list is the Yarmouth Mariners goalie.

Leif Hertz has been named first star of the month. In five games the 19 year old from Kingston, Ontario went a perfect 5-0 with a 1.77 GAA and a .943 save percentage.

Hertz got both his and the Mariners’ season rolling in the right direction with a 37-save performance and second star honors in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Slammers in Woodstock on Sept. 9.

Not to be outdone, the second-year Mariner netminder put on a clinic at home against the South Shore Lumberjacks on Sept 24. His 41-save performance, including 20 stops on 21 third period shots, earned him first star of the game in Yarmouth’s 7-1 victory over the Lumberjacks.

Hertz is already halfway towards eclipsing his win total (nine) for the entire 2015-16 season as the Mariners remained undefeated 7-0 in September.

Second star of the month went to Pictou Weeks Crushers forward Alexis Roy, who in six games scored four goals and contributed five assists as the Crushers went 5-1 during September.

Third star was Amherst Ramblers forward Jordan King who led the league in scoring with four goals and seven assists in five games.  The Ramblers went 3-2 in the month.
