F - Chase Ellingson, Breck
Just a freshman, Chase Ellingson scored a goal and an assist while registering a plus-3 rating as Breck beat Marshall 6-1 Wednesday afternoon. His goal was a backbreaker that made it 4-1 in the second after Marshall started gaining momentum. As a member of the third line, Ellingson shows just how deep Breck’s lineup is.
