Scottsdale native, ASU commit, Jr. Coyotes grad Strada selected USHL Forward of the Week



The USHL announced this week that Scottsdale native and Des Moines Buccaneers forward Joey Strada has been named the USHL Forward of the Week.


The Arizona State University commit and former Jr. Coyote scored five goals in two games against the Tri-City Storm over the weekend, including a four-goal performance on Saturday night in an 8-4 win for the Buccaneers.

“It was one of those nights where it felt like we were really clicking,” said Strada about his four-goal night. “It was a big win for our team, and I want to thank my linemates for helping us get it done.”

Strada, a ninth-round pick (131st overall) by the Bucs in the 2019 USHL Phase II Draft, is currently on a three-game goal streak and has nine points in his last five games played. He is currently tied for the USHL lead in goals with ten.

In total, he has ten goals and four assists for 14 points through 13 games played this season.
