Yesterday the USHL announced Gamblers forward Jackson Perbix has been named USHL Forward of the Week.
Perbix scored twice on Friday in Green Bay’s 4-3 shootout victory over Lincoln before recording a hat trick on Saturday against the Stars. The Elk River, MN native now leads the Gamblers in scoring with 31 points (9G, 22A) through 36 games. He is currently sporting a six-game point streak, with 12 points (7G, 5A) in that span and has recorded at least one point in nine of his last 11 contests, recording 17 points (8G, 9A) in those games. Perbix is in his first full USHL season after playing five games with Team USA during the 2016-17 season and suiting up in 17 games with the Gamblers in 2017-18, recording four points (1G, 3A) in those contests. Following the 2017-18 season, he was selected in the fourth round, 116th overall by the Anaheim Ducks at the 2018 NHL Draft. Perbix is committed to the University of Minnesota and was selected 15th overall by Green Bay in the 2016 USHL Phase I Draft. Prior to his time in the USHL, Perbix played for Elk River High (USHS).
