LZH Monthly – May 2021 RECAP

by Level Zero Heroes

LZH Monthly will be a series that analyzes Level Zero Heroes and how they performed throughout the previous month throughout the Veterans Hockey League season. Each article will discuss what went right for the team, what didn’t, as well as the best highlights, player, and game for the month. 

Chicago, IL - Level Zero Heroes ended up with a 3-1 record for the month of May and currently in 2nd place in the standings for the Veterans Hockey League.

What went right in the month of June:Players had a solid start to the season

Heading into the season, there were questions about a couple LZH players. This mainly included veterans who looked like they were on a downtrend, yet a number of them stepped up in the first month of the season.

Forward Kevin Fuller and Goaltender Alex Martinez are prime examples.

#25 Kevin Fuller - Scoring four goals in nine games during the LZH Winter War Games Fuller showed some improvement in his game, but has been a pleasant surprise in early VHL action. With four goals and two assists in only 4 games played, Fuller is one of the leaders in goals scored for the team and ranks 14th in the league in the same category.

# 31 Alex Martinez – Did not perform as well during the LZH War Games where Martinez ended up with a 3-4 record, however he has showed a big turnaround with a 3-1 record for the month of May and leads the league in all goaltending categories.

What went wrong in the month of May: Nothing

Believe it or not, this has been one of the best starts LZH has had in a long time. Even in their only loss in the month of May versus the Chicago Stars, LZH lost by a goal led for most of the game.

New LZH Players: Great Additions to the LZH FAMILY

#18 Brian Stack – Stack on the attack for the month of May and making an impact to say the least scoring four goals in only three games for the newcomer. Aggressive to the puck on both ends of the ice with a no quit attitude, Stack’s addition to the team may be exactly what the team needed.

#9 Sam Weinstein – Another forward pick up during the off season, Sammy has made an immediate impact on the scoreboard, scoring three goals in two games played.

Level Zero Heroes will have to build on their first month of play with a busy June ahead. The team will try and separate themselves from the pack to solidify their position for a chance to play for the VHL Championship in late July.
