Vanwormer Nets Two Goals in ECHL All Star Game
TOLEDO, Ohio - Kansas City Mavericks forward Jared VanWormer scored two goals for the ECHL Western Conference team in the ECHL All Star Game Monday night at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio. VanWormer also participated in the hardest shot competition for the Western Conference. He came in fourth place, with two shots registering 86 and 89 miles per hour. The Eastern Conference team ended up winning the All-Star tournament, with a 2-1 shootout win over the hosting Toledo Walleye's Team Fins.
VanWormer's first goal came at 2:19 of the second period and was assisted by the Indy Fuel's Alex Brooks. His second goal came just four minutes later. Brooks picked up another assist on the goal and Kalamazoo Wings forward was also credited with a helper on VanWormer's second tally.
The 26 year-old Traverse City, Michigan native has scored 14 goals and stacked up 16 assists for 30 points in 31 games this season. VanWormer is in his third season with the Mavericks. VanWormer was recently returned to the Mavs by the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League after a four-game PTO stint.
VanWormer played collegiately at Ferris State University. He joined the Mavericks following his senior year at Ferris State during the 2016-17 season.
