Three of the Invicta Dynamos made the prohockeynews.com all-star first line for 2016/17 after Adam Rehak, Ondrej Zosiak and Ashley Jackson were each voted to be amongst the best in the division by their peers throughout the league.
The prohockeynews.com awards see players and coaches from all across the NIHL South’s top tier cast their vote for the standout performers of the campaign with those polling highest then making the division’s all-star team. This year the form of imports Adam Rehak, Ondrej Zosiak and Brit Ashley Jackson has wowed their opponents resulting in the trio each making the all-star first line.
Adam Rehak has had a fantastic debut year in the NIHL South with a return of 91 points from 43 outings making him the side’s highest points’ scorer. On top of an impressive 52 goals and 39 assists the forward has shown he is no pushover and never hidden away from the physical side of the game. Add on possibly the fastest hands in the league, a great turn of pace and a solid work rate and it’s not hard to see why he has posed problems for every team in the division.
Blue liner Ondrej Zosiak is calmness personified and another excellent season has seen him gain the recognition of his peers for the second time in as many campaigns. The Slovak has chipped in with 25 points from the back including 14 goals and 11 assists but his composure in his own zone and experience in front of net has undoubtedly prevented many more at the other end of the ice. In 2016/17 the big D-man has also worn the ‘A’ of alternate captain leading the side by example both on and off the ice.
Not content with being Great Britain’s field hockey prodigy, Ashley Jackson has proven himself to be just as skilled on the ice with 60 points in 33 outings so far. The forward has not only brought 26 goals and 34 assists to the team but hugely invaluable experience, great athleticism and a drive that has helped power the team both on and off the ice. Jackson might have been out of the sport for a number of years but his performances suggest he has never been away and have since been fully recognised by his peers in the NIHL South Division 1.
