Thunder goalie Tim Boron has picked up another honor. An excerpt from the CHL press release follows.
The Central Hockey League (CHL) announced today that Tim Boron of the Wichita Thunder has been voted the winner of the CHL Performance of the Week for Week 10. The netminder made 53 saves in a 2-1 Thunder victory over Mississippi on December 19th propelling him to the award. Boron’s effort received 49% of the vote earning 289 of the 591 votes cast. Coming in second place was Laredo’s Darryl Smith who scored the game winning goal with 16 seconds left on the clock in the Bucks 4-3 win over Corpus Christi on December 20th.
Tough trivia: I’d be impressed if someone knows this one. Thunder defenseman Jason Tessier recorded a hat trick in the team’s 6-3 victory over Tulsa on Dec. 26. Who was the last Thunder defenseman to get a hat trick? (Answer will be in my CHL report tomorrow.)
All Stars: Starters will be announced later this afternoon. Reserves will be announced tomorrow.
