Remember the name Alex Bump? 

Bump, a 2022 fifth-round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers, set the Minnesota prep hockey tournament on fire as he scored five goals for Prior Lake High School in an upset win over Cretin-Derham Hall in the 2022 state quarterfinals, and he went on to finish the tournament with seven goals. 

Anyway, Bump now stars at Western Michigan and on Saturday night in a showdown against Denver University he scored a goal and was greeted rudely by the raised middle finger from a man sitting next to a child in the front row of the crowd. 

Bump originally committed to the University of Vermont before changing plans after a coaching change, which led him to Western Michigan where he's blossomed into a top-line player who is considered one of the best freshmen in the county. 

This past week Bump was named to the Tim Taylor Rookie of the Year Award Watch List, given annually to the nation's top first-year player.

Bump had 83 points (48 goals, 35 assists) in 31 games as a senior in high school at Prior Lake and was one of ten Mr. Hockey finalists in addition to being named the USA Today Hockey Player of the Year.
