It was a big weekend for the Wilkes-Barre Miners and forward Ryan Flanagan. The 18-year-old native of Yatesville, PA racked up the points in a home sweep of the Skylands Kings. Flanagan (5’11/180) had 11 points in two games, which included hat-tricks in both wins and a +9 rating. On Saturday, Flanagan had three goals and two assists in an 8-6 win and on Sunday, he scored three more goals, including the game-winner, and added three assists in a 10-1 win. For the season, Flanagan, who played in the NA3EHL West Division prospects team in December, leads the Miners in scoring with 65 points in 35 games played. “We had a solid weekend, winning both games and Ryan was a huge help. He's a good leader on the ice, doing what he's supposed to do. He's a major offensive threat and always working hard to get the puck to the net,” said Ray Welsh, General Manager of the Wilkes-Barre Miners.
