Connor Kurth is this week’s USHL Player of the Week. In an abbreviated beginning to the 2020 USHL season Connor Kurth had an impressive start.  

When Connor last played he stacking his stats with a powerful Gentry 16U squad. One would have to think that the build up to playing in the USHL might prove to be a bit overwhelming. This was not so for Connor. Now skating with the Dubuque Saints, Kurth open this season with USHL’s first hat-trick. Connor played two games this weekend but it was the first Saint’s game on Friday (against the Muskegon Lumberjacks) where he opened the game’s scoring with help from teammates Primo Self and Braden Doyle. Unfortunately for his Saints, Muskegon responded with five unanswered goals. He wasn’t finished though and in the third, he found the net twice (both times unassisted). However, Dubuque never could catch up despite Kurth’s contribution. The Saints fell to the Lumberjacks 7-4.

Forward, Connor Kurth (17) is a native of Elk River, MN. Through his youth, Miller spent the latter part of his development in the NAPHL; where he skated with Gentry Academy’s 15U and 16U programs. Last season Connor made the NAPHL 16U All-Star Game and the NAPHL 16U First All-Star Team. He was achieved the most NAPHL goalies for 2019/20 with 30. He has committed to play for the University of Minnesota beginning in 2021.
