Here is some news on a CC commit from the NAHL …

West Division Star of the Week: Duggie Lagrone, defenseman, Fairbanks Ice Dogs
The Fairbanks Ice Dogs completed a perfect sweep in the state of Texas this past weekend with a two-game sweep of the Wichita Falls Wildcats, which followed up their sweep last week of Corpus Christi.  This past week, Dallas, Texas native and Fairbanks defenseman Duggie Lagrone, 18, felt right at home as he picked up four points and was +2 in a weekend sweep in Wichita Falls.  On Friday night, Lagrone (5’8/170) assisted on the Ice Dogs first goal in a 2-1 win.  On Saturday, Lagrone had a goal and assisted on two others (including the game-winner) in a 5-3 win over Wichita Falls.  In 16 games this season, Lagrone has 11 points.  “I think there was a little added motivation for Duggie because he was back in his home state of Texas and had a lot of family in attendance at the games,” said Fairbanks head coach Trevor Stewart.  “You could tell he was playing with some extra emotion.  He can skate really well and does a very good job at beating the forecheck and getting the puck out of the zone and up the ice.”

Here is the weekend review for the future NCHC.
