Prospect Derrick LaPoint Named USHL\'s Defensive Player of the Week

Derrick LaPoint, who was the Green Bay Gamblers first round selection in the 2006 USHL Entry Draft, was named the USHL Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

On Saturday, the Florida Panthers draft choice notched a pair of assists in the Gamblers 7-4 win. The following afternoon, LaPoint tallied a goal and also assisted on the game-winning goal in the 5-4 win. On the season, the North Dakota recruit leads all USHL defensemen in scoring with five points (2g & 3a).
