Kevin Aslett, John Strahle and Michael Frei were all named to the 2009 NORPAC Pacific Division All-Star Team earlier today. The Generals were the only team to have more than one player recognized as a First Team All-Star.
Kevin Aslett was named the First Team Goaltender, John Strahle was named a First Team Defenseman and Michael Frei was named a First Team Forward. The other three players recognized as a First Team Pacific Division All-Star were defenseman Dylan Cosford of the River City Jaguars, forward Spencer Galvin of the Seattle Totems and forward Brandon Kaufman of the Puget Sound Tomahawks.
“It’s good to see Aslett, Strahle and Frei get recognition for their performance during the season, though it comes as no surprise to me,” Generals Head Coach Jay Miller stated. “All three players will be moving on to the collegiate level next season, and we wish them the best of luck. I’m sure they’ll make an impact wherever they go.”
Kevin Aslett led NORPAC 2008/09 Regular Season in wins with 25, was ranked first in the Pacific Division with a 2.35 GAA (Goals Against Average) and was ranked first in the Pacific Division with a .924 SV% (Save Percentage).
The stay-at-home defenseman John Strahle was third in the Pacific Division in points during the 2008/09 Regular season with 12 goals and 25 assists in 45 games. Strahle ranked fifth on the Generals with 312 on the season, and was sixth on the team (second among defensemen) in plus-minus with a plus-35 during the season.
Michael Frei was second in NORPAC with 46 goals, and was first in the league in goals per game (1.12). Frei broke the previous Generals record for goals in a season by five, which was set by Ryan Schank in the Generals inaugural 2005/06 campaign. Frei was also third in the league in points with 89.
