AUSTIN, Minn. - Bruins forward Dante Sheriff has been named the NAHL Bauer Central Division Star of the Week after a five-point weekend.
Sheriff, who currently is tied for seventh in the NAHL in scoring with 64 points, registered a goal and four assists in the Bruins weekend split with the Brookings Blizzard. Sheriff's four-point night on Friday night helped Austin clinch a spot in the Robertson Cup Playoffs for the second straight season.
