BISMARCK, ND–Two Bismarck Bobcats were named honorable mentions for this week’s NAHL Central Division Easton Star of the Week.
Stanislav Dzakhov (Moscow, Russia) and Chris Diver (Wilmington, DE) both had impressive performances as the Bobcats split with Wenatchee.
Dzakhov scored three goals in the two games, notching a power play goal to open the scoring on Friday night, then adding two goals Saturday as the Bobcats built a 3-1 lead. Dzakhov is now tied for ninth in the NAHL in scoring with 35 points, and his 19 goals are tied for third most in the league.
Diver assisted twice on Saturday, then scored the lone shootout goal, as the shootout went to a sixth round, pushing the Bobcats to a 4-3 win over the Wild. Diver missed seven weeks of games due to illness and injury, and has recovered well over the past few weeks.
The Bobcats are five points outside of first place in the NAHL Central, and headed to Austin, the division leader, this weekend for a Friday–Saturday doubleheader. Both games will be broadcast on Supertalk 1270 KLXX.
