THUNDER BAY, Ont. "“ The Superior International Junior Hockey League announced Monday that Julius Tamasy of the Duluth Clydesdales has been named the opening Pizza Hut player of the week for 2011.
In three games this past week the 20-year-old Duluth native racked up eight points on two goals and six assists.
Tamasy registered an assist in his club"™s final game of 2010 vs. Fort Frances and then piled up seven points helping the Clydesdales sweep a pair against the visiting Thunder Bay North Stars over the weekend.
