The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) today announced defenseman Nathan Bruyere of the Pensacola Ice Flyers is the Bauer Player of the Week for February 6-12.

On Friday, the Eagle Lake, ON native opened the scoring with a first-period power play goal and added an assist in Pensacola’s 6-3 win over Peoria.
