The Lockport Express congratulate Dillon Hayes for scoring the game-winning goal Saturday night at Cornerstone CFCU Arena. Hayes was awarded the co-offensive star of the week by the NA3EHL for his performance despite the personal tragedy he suffered in the loss of his father Saturday morning.  (ENP FILE PHOTO)


Dillon Hayes, fresh off a three-goal game against the Roc City Royals Saturday night at Cornerstone CFCU Arena, has been named the NA3EHL co-offensive player of the week.

The league said the following for its reasoning behind the honor:
Dillon Hayes from the Lockport Express had a good offensive weekend with two goals in two games, but it was in the fashion he did it that he earns co-honors this week. In Saturday’s 3-2 shootout win over Roc City, the native of North Tonawanda, NY, had both goals in regulation and then the shootout winner, accounting for all the scoring. What is even more remarkable is that earlier that morning, Hayes’ father Tim Hayes, passed away. Hayes told head coach Frank Vecchio that he wanted to play. The coach not only let him, he let him pick the starting lineup. Hayes chose Alex Bottenfield, Justin Durkee, Anthony Merante and Ryan Logar to play beside him. He said they were his best friends on the team, calling them his "brothers."
Hayes told East Niagara Post that he felt his father was watching and he wanted to make him proud.

Sharing the offensive honors with Hayes is Henrik Nilsson of the New England Stars, who played a key role in his team's three wins this past weekend scoring four goals and adding an assist on the eventual game winner in Sunday’s 3-2 victory over the Cape Cod Islanders.

Defensive star of the week is Ben Henderson of the Maine Wild. The offensive defenseman has scored nine points in just 13 games with the Wild, including three this past weekend.

The Express has a pair of games this weekend against the New Hampshire Fighting Sprit at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine.
