Tampa Bay Juniors Elite Defenseman Parker Chadwell was named USPHL Southern Division Player of the Month.
The Tampa Bay Juniors entered February as the favorites to clinch the Florida Division title in the USPHL Elite, as they try to punch their airplane tickets for Boston and the USPHL Nationals in March.
The team would go there with a defensive corps that has five of the top six defensemen born in 2001, so this is a young but very talented group. Among the ‘01 blueliners is the Valrico, Fla., resident Chadwell, who earned nine points in his seven January appearances.
He helped keep the Juniors’ opponents to 25.7 shots per game during the month, as the Juniors went 6-1 in January. Chadwell started the month off right with a three-assist effort, and later posted six points over the space of four games.
