Four Fighting Saints Selected for Top Prospects Game
DUBUQUE, Iowa - Matias Maccelli, Michael Feenstra, Dylan Jackson and Ty Jackson were selected for the USHL/NHL Top Prospects game this morning. The four will represent the Fighting Saints in the showcase game on January, 8th at the Ice Box in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The two-day event featuring the USHL's top NHL Draft-eligible talent will begin on Monday, Jan. 7 with off-ice measurements and on-ice drills conducted by NHL Central Scouting. The game will then take place on Tuesday night.
"The game and everything surrounding it is such a great event," said Saints general manager Kalle Larsson. "We are proud of all four Fighting Saints that get to showcase their skills on this stage in front of all scouts in attendance."
Maccelli is having a stellar year for the Fighting Saints. In his second season with the team, Maccelli is tied for 11th in the USHL with 23 points. He leads Dubuque in that category and is also tops in goals. Maccelli is currently riding a season high nine game point streak.
The Jackson twins have produced exceptionally well in their first season at the USHL level. Both Dylan and Ty have 16 points through the first 21 games. Ty has emerged as the goal scorer, with nine, while Dylan has been the playmaker, accumulating 10 assists. The twins sit tied for fifth on the team in points.
Feenstra, a Michigan State commit in his second season with Dubuque, has been a smooth skating defenseman for Dubuque. Feenstra has a goal and two assists in the 17 game this season and is currently tied for 6th on the team with a plus/minus of plus-4.
"Ty, Dylan, Michael and Matias have all worked hard to earn this opportunity and we look forward to their participation in the Top Prospects game," said Larsson.
Coaches, support staffs and officials for the showcase game will be announced at a later date.
