The United States Hockey League (USHL) announced on Monday that Kieffer Bellows has been named USHL/CCM Co-Forward of the Week after posting four goals in two games. It marks the first time he has taken home the award this season and joins linemate Cooper Marody as Stampede forwards to earn the award.
The 16-year-old tallied the Herd’s first goal in a 5-3 setback at Sioux City on Friday. Bellows then recorded a hat trick on Saturday in Tri-City as the Herd rallied from a 4-0 deficit to earn a point in a 5-4 shootout loss. Bellows tallied the first goal of the game and then tallied the Stampede’s third and fourth goals in a span of 44 seconds late in the game to tie the game 4-4 and eventually force overtime and a shootout. Bellows went on to record the Herd’s only goal in the shootout against the Storm.
The Edina, MN native leads the team in goals scored (20) and is currently riding his second five-game point scoring streak of the season (6g, 2a). He has tallied 17 points (13g, 4a) over his last 12 contests in which the Stampede have gone 7-3-2.
Bellows was the Herd’s first round pick (13th overall) during the 2014 Phase 1 USHL Draft after spending last season at Edina High School where posted 34 points (13g, 21a) in 31 games while leading the Hornets to the Minnesota State High School AA Championship. He has already committed to play collegiate hockey at Boston University.
Bellows and the Stampede return home this Friday and Saturday to host Chicago and Fargo at the PREMIER Center.
