Mercyhurst recruit Lester Lancaster, 19, helped the Jr. Blues take two of three games in their weekend road series against the Soo Eagles. The native of Ypsilanti, Michigan, had seven points (all assists) in the three games and was also a +3. On Thursday, Lancaster (5’11/170) had two assists in a 4-1 win. On Friday, he chimed in with three assists in a 6-4 loss. On Saturday, he again assisted twice in a 5-4 win, in which he also had the shootout winning goal. For the season, Lancaster leads the Jr. Blues in scoring with 16 points in 18 games played. “Lester is playing very well right now. He is understanding when to jump into the play and when to hold back. He is a big reason we are winning right now and big reason behind our recent power play success,” said Jr. Blues head coach Tony Zasowski.
