Great Western Futures' USHL Player of the Week: Aidan McDonough Junior Hockey News

Aidan McDonough is this weeks’ Great Western Futures Super Camp USHL Player of the Week. Aidan joins his teammate Goalie: Blake Pietila for this week’s top USHL honor. Unlike most USHL squads this weekend, The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders played three games this week. They won two of those and they can thank McDonough for both of those victories. McDonough nabbed the second goal of the two-goal shutout of the Dubuque Fighting Saints on Friday. On Saturday, McDonough fed the puck to teammate Jason Polin to put Cedar Rapids on the board and open the scoring, in the second, against the Green Bay Gamblers. He returned the favor when Polin assisted him with an empty net goal in the third.

Aidan McDonough (19) grew up in Milton, MA. The left-handed forward traded playing time in his youth between Thayer Academy and the Cape Cod Whalers of the MHSL. He has committed to play for Northeastern University beginning in 2019-20.
