Veteran defenseman picks up first-ever USHL honors

CHICAGO — Dubuque Fighting Saints defenseman Brendan Bushy (Thief River Falls, Minn./St. Cloud State) was named USHL Defenseman of the Week by the USHL league office. Bushy is in his second season with the Saints, and this is the first time he has been honored by the league.

“I’m happy to get the honor,” Bushy said. “A lot of the credit goes to my teammates, putting me in a great position to succeed.”

Bushy finished the weekend sweep of the Central Illinois Flying Aces with two goals, six shots on goal, and a +4 rating. His goal in the Saturday victory over the Aces proved to be the game-winning goal.

In his career, Bushy has played 65 games, and is a career +12 with just 26 penalty minutes to his credit.
