This year for Christmas, Kenai River Brown Bears forward Alex Jackstadt got his game back.
After an offseason and early part of the season spent in transition, Jackstadt, a 5-foot-7, 155-pound 20-year-old, made his much anticipated return to the Brown Bears on Oct. 24, but put up just six points in 18 games and was a minus-26.
Then came Christmas, and a resurgence.
After the holiday break, Jackstadt has put up 15 points in 19 games. Even more impressive, he is a minus-1 during that time, while the Bears have been outscored by 47 goals over the same period.
