Oct 11, 2011

1st Star: Kyle Cook, forward, Springfield Jr. Blues
Cook, 19, recorded three goals and two assists as the Springfield Jr. Blues split a weekend road series against the St. Louis Bandits.  On Friday, Cook (6’4/215 lbs.) was kept off the scoreboard in a 5-0 loss, but managed not to pick up a minus.  However on Saturday, Cook had a breakout game with a hat-trick and two assists in Springfield’s 7-2 win over the Bandits.  Cook, who is from Middleburg Heights, Ohio, scored once in the 1st period, twice in the 2nd period and also assisted on the game-winning goal.  The five points in one game was a career high for Cook who leads the Jr. Blues in scoring this season with 12 points in 10 games played.  “Kyle is a forward that understands how to combine his size with great skill and touch,” said Springfield head coach Joe Dibble.  “He can score and has become a leader that we look to lead our team on a nightly basis.”
