Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

Winger Peter Sivak, who leads the Alaska Aces in goals and points, and ranks second in the league in scoring, today was revealed by the ECHL as a first-team all-league player.

Sivak becomes the 13th Aces to be voted a first-teamer in the club's 11 seasons in the league.

Sivak owns 29-50--79 totals in 65 games, and leads the league in plus-minus (+46) and shots on goal (256). He's been a staple on the first line with center Nick Mazzolini all season, and he plays in all situations.

Sivak only once has been held without a shot on goal this season, and he had an assist in that game. He has nine times produced three or more points in a game, and 19 times furnished multiple-point games. He has reeled off point streaks of nine games, eight games, seven games and five games.

Voting came from league coaches, media relations directors broadcasters and media.

Also on the first team:

*South Carolina goaltender Jeff Jakaitis, 24-12-3, 2.16, .924.

*Kalamazoo defenseman Sam Ftorek, 13-34--47 and +5 in 68 games. Plus, victory for old dudes like The Blog -- Ftorek is 39.

*Ontario defenseman Matt Register, 14-30--44 in 66, and +22.

*Orlando sniper Mickey Lang, 44-31--75 and +6 in 58 games. Dude has 15 more goals than anyone on the circuit.

*Fort Wayne forward Brandon Marino, the league's leading scorer with 29-57--86 totals and an even ranking in 70 games.
