Trenton’s Noebels named ECHL Rookie of the Month

Trenton Titans forward and recent Adirondack Phantoms call-up Marcel Noebels has been named the ECHL’s Rookie of the Month for December.

The 20-year-old native of Germany tallied nine goals and 12 assists for 21 points in 14 games last month helping the Titans go 7-4-3.

Noebels tallied at least one point in 12 of 14 games during December, and recorded five multi-point games, including four points (3G, 1A) in a 7-6 win against Elmira on December 1, three points (1G, 2A) in a 5-2 win at Fort Wayne on December 22 and three assists in a highly-contentious 5-4 loss at Reading on December 28.

Noebels, who was a runner-up for the league’s Player of the Month, leads the Titans and all ECHL rookies, with 30 points (11G, 19A) in 31 games.

Noebels played the previous two seasons with Seattle and Portland in the Western Hockey League, scoring 112 points in 128 games.
