Dragon named Canalta Player of the Week

    A veteran in the ranks of the Drumheller Dragons is being recognized as one of the top players in the AJHL.
    Forward Ryan Bloom, a 19 year old Calgary native, was named the Canalta Player of the Week for the week of December 10 to 16.
    “I’d say there are three guys that deserved to be looked at for that Player of the Week. Ryan, Bryton Mills, and Brennan Baxandall,” said Brian Curran, head coach and general manager of the Dragons. “I’m really happy one of our boys got it.”
    During that week, Bloom accumulated one goal and six assists for a total of seven points.
    Bloom is currently leading the Dragons in goals, assists, and points and has proven himself to be consistently contributing to the Dragons’ efforts.
    Curran attributed that success to Bloom’s confidence and determination and his line mates.
    “If you look at his line, which is him, Bryton Mills, and Colton Vanucci, they’ve really played well together. It’s a very successful line,” said Curran. “Even when teams focus on them, they battle through. That’s just how Ryan plays.”
    Amongst the league leaders, Bloom is in 12th place for points.
    Over the 2012-2013 season, Bloom has averaged one point per game and has contributed 11 points in December alone.
    With 24 games left in the regular season, Bloom is on track to surpass his 2011-2012 totals of 17 goals, 28 assists, and 45 points.
    This is Bloom's third season with the Dragons.
