One of the brightest spots for the Missouri Mavericks so far this season is a newcomer with a long last name, Right winger Sam Povorozniouk. Povo as his new teammates call him is enjoying his first full year in pro hockey. The man with a long last name currently leads the Mavericks in goals with 6. Sam scored the game winning goals for the Mavs in 2 of their victories on their recently concluded Florida road trip.
One of the new leaders for the Missouri Mavericks this season is rookie Lukas Lofquist. The 20-year-old left winger is tied for the team lead in goals with four in the team's nine games played so far. Lofty, he is known to his teammates, played the past two seasons in the Ontario Hockey League.
The 2016-17 season, like the ones before it, will see several players wear a Missouri Mavericks sweater. For this particular season to be a successful one Mavs fans will want to hear the name "Foxy" a lot. Foxy is the nickname for new Mavericks forward Dane Fox.
The Mavericks acquired the high scoring forward in hopes he will put the puck in the back of the net a lot as the team secures another winning season.
