Larry Jungwirth Corpus Christi IceRays
Corpus Christi IceRays forward Larry Jungwirth, 20, led all NAHL players during the month of November with 14 points in 8 games played. That included a league-high 12 goals in addition to two assists. The 5’11/170 lbs. native of Bloomington, Minnesota, registered at least a point in seven of his eight games during the month and also recorded four multi-point games. His best outing came in a 5-2 win over Topeka on November 10th where he had a hat-trick and an assist. For the season, Jungwirth leads the IceRays in scoring with 23 points in 24 games played. His 16 goals is currently tied for 2nd in the NAHL. “Larry had a terrific month statistically for us. He came back to Corpus Christi with two goals in mind. The first was to win a Robertson Cup and the second was to secure an NCAA Division I commitment. By producing the way that he has in November he is helping our team succeed and also helping his individual stock continue to rise. We are very happy for Larry to be recognized for his hard work,” said IceRays head coach Brad Flynn.
“First and foremost, I have to thank my teammates and coaches. Our success here is a team effort and none of the individual success would be possible without all of them. I think we started to gel in November and become a family. I think playing some home games helped, but we are getting closer every single day. Everyone is buying into a team system and we are trying to have success as a single unit,” said Jungwirth. “The NAHL is full of a lot of skilled, hard-working, and talented players. You have to come ready to play every day. I would love to play in the NHL one day, but the next step is to keep working hard to try and earn an NCAA Division I commitment.”
