Benito Posa is this week’s Great Western Futures Super Camp USHL Player of the Week. Benito Posa was acquired by the Buccaneers from the Green Bay Gamblers on January 10th. The new Des Moines Buccaneers’ forward had a productive week against the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders. In the first half of the home and home series against their in-state rivals, Posa got the assist on Mason Nevers’ goal. The goal proved critical as it evened the score, forcing overtime. In OT, Posa found the net again to win the game (his first) for the Bucs in Des Moines.
In the second half of the series, Posa opened the scoring in Cedar Rapids at the 16:09 mark in the first. The second period would see the Bucs score another goal but the RoughRiders scored two unanswered goals to force overtime between the two clubs. Again, it would be Benito Posa to beat the RoughRiders with another game-winning goal.
Forward, Benito Posa (20) grew up playing hockey in Grand Blanc just outside of Flint, MI. Posa spent the later years of his development with the Tri-City IceHawks and Meijer AAA. Benito broke into the Juniors with the West Michigan Wolves of the NA3HL in 2016-17. He was drafted in 2017, #145 overall by the Austin Bruins in the NAHL Entry Draft. Since then he has skated for the Muskegon Lumberjacks, Central Illinois Flying Aces, Green Bay Gamblers and now the Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL. He has committed to play for Lake Superior State University beginning in 2020-21
