Augusta Netminder Robby Moss Named Easton Player of the Week
HUNTERSVILLE, NC – The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) today announced Robby Moss of the Augusta RiverHawks is the Easton Player of the Week for December 3-9.
Moss went 2-0-1, posting a 0.81 goals against average, a .970 save percentage and one shutout as the RiverHawks picked up five of a possible six points, including their first home win of the season.

On Saturday, Moss made 26 saves in a 2-1 overtime loss against the Surge.
A native of Chesterfield, Missouri, Moss played four years at St. Lawrence University (ECAC). Prior to that, Moss played two seasons with the North Iowa Outlaws of the North American Hockey League.
