Herrera Named NCDC Player of the Month

Michael Herrera (‘02/Syracuse, N.Y.) was named USPHL Player of the Month – South Division for the month of October.

Clicking at close to goal-per-game pace, Herrera is back in the USPHL after spending two years with the NCAA Division III Nazareth College. After obviously gaining valuable experience there, Herrera has his eyes set on a Division I opportunity and scouts at that level can’t ignore his 10 goals in 11 NCDC games early on. He has also added seven assists during the season for 17 points. Herrera has scored goals in seven of 11 games and registered points in all but two.

Herrera grew up in Syracuse and played for the prestigious Nationals program as well as the Rochester Coalition and the USPHL 15U’s own Northern Cyclones before signing on in 2019-20 with the then newly-minted Jr. Comets. In 35 Premier games that year, he registered 18 points and was a point-per-game man in three playoff games. He also registered two NCDC games that year and earned his NCAA commitment to Nazareth, with whom he played 11 games and scored three points between 2020 and the start of the 2021-22, before returning to Utica and playing seven NCDC games last year.
