CORPUS CHRISTI - IceRays Forward Rudy Sulmonte has been named the South Division Star of the Week after guiding Corpus Christi to a weekend sweep on the road of the Odessa Jackalopes, as they moved their record above .500.
The native of Leavittown, New York, racked up six points, which included four goals (including back-to-back game-winners) and two assists in the weekend wins. On Friday, Sulmonte (5'8/177) scored two goals, which included the game-winner in the 1st period, and picked up an assist in a convincing 8-1 win over the Jacks. On Saturday, it was a repeat performance of two goals and one assist, but this time all in the 3rd period as the IceRays scored five, 3rd period goals on their way to a 5-2 win. Sulmonte ranks 2nd on the IceRays roster in points this season with 32 in 33 games played.
"Rudy played very well and we needed that type of great effort from our top line," said IceRays head coach Justin Quenneville. "He sees the ice so well and puts himself and his linemates in good position to create scoring chances and make things happen."
