Luke Gassett, a senior forward for the St. Louis University High School boys varsity hockey team, is this week’s recipient of the 590 The Fan High School Athlete of the Week award.
Gassett had three assists last week in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. He ranks 6th in the St. Louis area in scoring with 22 goals and has a combined 47 points on the season.
“You know I came into a rebuilding situation, but that gave me the opportunity to play right away,” Gassett said. “It takes a lot of discipline and a lot of thinking. Everyone says hockey is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical, which I like.”
The SLUH junior Billikens suffered a loss in the finals to the CBC Cadets and finished the season 24-4.
