Felsing and Dickey Named to '20-'21 All-NAPHL All-Star Teams

The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) has announced All-NAPHL Tier I 18U Teams for the Central, West and At-Large Divisions for the 2020-21 season. Consideration and selection are based on player performance in all NAPHL regular season and playoff games throughout the 2020-21 season.

Esmark Stars U18 AAA Goaltender Nathan Dickey and Forward Michael Felsing were selected to the 2020-2021 All-NAPHL 18U At-Large Team.

In nine regular season 2020-21 NAPHL appearances, Dickey, who is from Butler, PA, recorded a record of 8-0-0-0 with one shutout, and had a .929 save percentage, and a goals against average (GAA) of 1.44.

In three 2020-21 NAPHL Dixon Cup Playoff appearances, Dickey (6' 1", 170 lbs.), recorded a record of 2-1-0-0 with one shutout.

Dickey, who earlier this season tendered with the Kenai River Brown Bears of the NAHL. was also selected by the league to participate in the 2020-21 NAPHL U18 All-Star game.

He has skated for the Stars since joining as a Pee Wee Major player and has participated in the NAPHL for three seasons (as a U16 and U15 player in previous seasons and this year as a U18 player). 

Felsing (5'11", 170 lbs.) scored 29 points (11 goals, 18 assists), including four power-play goals, two shorthanded goals, and one game winning shootout goal, in 20 NAPHL regular season appearances.

A first year Esmark player, and native of Pittsburgh, PA, he added five points (4 goals, 1 assist) in five 2020-21 NAPHL Dixon Cup Playoff appearances.

Felsing was also selected to and participated in the 2020-21 NAPHL U18 All-Star game, where he scored a goal for Team Matthews.

"Both Nathan and Michael obviously contributed significantly to our team's success this season," said Stars U18 head coach Dave Kosick.  "Being recognized by the NAPHL is an acknowledgement by the league that they were in fact among the very best in both the league and in the nation."
