Bronner Named Easton Player of the Week

HUNTERSVILLE, NC - The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) today announced Phil Bronner of the Mississippi RiverKings is the Easton Player of the Week for January 13-19.

Bronner, who was acquired in a trade with Knoxville earlier in the week, made an immediate impact by scoring three goals, two of which were game-winners, as the RiverKings swept a pair of games and moved into a tie for first place in the standings.


On Friday, the Wilbraham, MA native scored both of Mississippi’s second period goals as the RiverKings defeated Louisiana 3-2. Bronner gained a measure of revenge against his former club on Saturday as he scored a power-play goal 1:11 into overtime to defeat Knoxville 4-3.

Before turning pro, Bronner played four seasons at UMass-Dartmouth, where he led the team in goals his senior season.

Also Nominated: BJ O’Brien, Bloomington (1-1-0, 1.51 gaa, .947 save%), Andrew Loewen, Columbus (2-0-0, 1.00 gaa, .963 save%, one shutout), Derek Elliott, Fayetteville (3 gp, 1g), Jesse Kallechy, Huntsville (2-0-0, 1.50 gaa, .957 save%, one shutout), Francis Drolet, Knoxville (3 gp, 2g, 2a, 2 ppg), Shawn McNeil, Louisiana (2 gp, 1g, 1a), Mathieu Dugas, Mississippi Surge (1-0-0, 2.00 gaa, .956 save%) and Kyle Rank, Peoria (1-2-0, 2.02 gaa, .929 save%, one shutout).
