Meet A Maverick ~ Sam Povorozniouk

Meet A Maverick ~  Sam Povorozniouk

November 25, 2016

By Fred Liggett

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. 

Povo's favorite sports team is the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers as he finds LeBron James fun to follow around. Sam hails from Northbrook, Illinois, most of his family is still there rooting him on from home.  Povo's favorite Hockey memory so far occurred Last year in St. John when his team won the first round of the playoffs. It was Sam's first post season experience in Junior hockey. St. John is in the Quebec Junior Hockey league.

If not in pro hockey today Povo feels he would be out selling cars as its something that interests him. Sam first put on a pair of skates at about 5 years old. On those long road trips within the ECHL Povo likes to watch movies and play cards. Yes Sam does cook, more grilling than anything as he likes to do chicken & shrimp primarily. Following his playing days Povo hopes to be remembered as a goal scorer which he feels is his best ability. Sam has already been downtow since hitting the KC area but would like to make a KC Chiefs game before the end of their season.

Check out Povo when he and his teammates return to home ice on Wednesday, Nov. 30th as the Mavericks host the defending ECHL champions, Allen Americans. The fun begins when the puck drops inside the Silverstein Eye centers arena at 7:05 p.m.
