Arizona natives Inabinet, Peterson secure monthly NCDC, USPHL honors for February


The NCDC and USPHL have announced their monthly awards for February, with a pair of Arizona natives earning the honors.

Idaho Falls Spud Kings goalie Tucker Inabinet is the NCDC Mountain Division Goaltender of the Month and Las Vegas Thunderbirds netminder Sam Peterson is the Pacific Premier Goaltender of the Month.

Inabinet, an ‘03 from Phoenix, had another fantastic month as he looks to help the Spud Kings in their determination to make the Mountain Division playoffs.

He went 6-2-0-0 with a .958 save percentage, stopping 254 of 265 shots. He stopped all 30 shots that he faced on Feb. 9 against Utah, one game before stopping 45 of 46 against Ogden, and then he stopped 34 of 35 against Provo for three outstanding performances in a row. In 10 games between Jan. 27 and March 1, he only allowed more than one goal twice.

Back home, Inabinet played for the Jr. Coyotes

Peterson, a 2003 birth year out of Scottsdale, was unbeaten during the month of February, going 4-0 with 200 saves on 207 shots for the month, giving him a .966 save percentage. The second-year T-Bird went 15-5-0-0 with a .924 save percentage. The four-game winning streak was his second of at least that length, as he also went 5-0 between Dec. 9 and Jan. 12.

In Arizona, Peterson played for the Jr. Coyotes, Arizona Bobcats and Brophy High School.
