Trailing only teammate Mike Padgeon in the NA3HL scoring race, Melso has been on a tear with 62 points 22 games this year as the Jr. Senators continue their dominance in the Northeast Division. Last week featured some balanced attacking play from the native of Philadelphia, as he potted 3g-4a-7pts in two contests for Binghamton. On Friday, he scored once and helped out on two other tallies for his ninth game with three or more points. Saturday saw him have a hand in each of Binghamton’s four tallies, as Melso nabbed two goals and two assists in a 4-2 win over New England. Melso went +5 on the weekend, and ranks third in the league with a season-long +54 to date.
For the second time this season, Eric Melso has won Northeast Division Player of the Week.
