Welcome back to another fun filled edition of AHL Players of the Week. This week we will feature 3 brand new forwards up for the award, a familiar face in the defense and a goalies that is trying to do what he couldn't do last week, win. Every week the task of choosing the winner just keeps getting harder and harder. Every week the skaters keep putting up more and more points while the top goalies are putting themselves in categories of their own. Good Luck to everyone that is honored and up for the chance to win.
So lets start backwards this week and go with the goalies first. As you can see we have two familiar names on this list of Binny_50 and WVU7_PENS87 with a new contender of TBLightning27. Binny_50, who plays for the Condors, had another respectable week going 6-0-0 posting a gaa of 2.33 and a save percentage of .803%. He is the only one on the list this week that was able to secure a shutout. Next up we have the new comer, TBLightning27. TBL plays for Providence and helped his team posting a 4-1-0 record. Over the 5 games, he stopped 36 of 46 shots faced, with a .783% save percentage and a gaa of 1.75. WVU7_PENS87 made it his mission this week to avenge the snubbing of the previous week by shutting down his opponents this week. The Americans goalie played in 6 of the teams 8 games going 6-0-0 and had an outstanding 1.59 gg while stopping 70 of the 80 shots he faced. His save percentage of .875% is the highest of any goalie that played more than 4 games. And the winner for Week 6 goes to... WVU7_PENS87!!! Congrats on earning the award.
Now lets move to the category that plays in front of the goalies and helps them get to the numbers that they get to. This week we have a repeat contender from last week from the Stockton Heat, Bo-Dangles10. Bo played in 6 games this week putting up 3g, 11a and a total of 14pts. He avg 2.33 ppg, with a +/- of 20 and helped his team to a 4-2-0 record. Next up we have 2 players from Colorado. First lets discuss GeneralPatton044, he played in four games this week going 4-0-0. He put up 1g, 10a, and a total of 11pts. He avg 2.75ppg with a +/- of 22 and added 1 power play goal. Last but certainly not least, we have DudNastyy. Dud plays along side General and had similar numbers. He put up 2g, 11a 13pts, with a +/- of 18 for a ppg of 2.17. He helped his team go 5-0-1 and stayed out of the penalty box. He also added a power play goal. This was a tough decision this week as all of the competitors were very even but I have decided to give the honor to... GeneralPatton044!!! Congrats on winning the award.
And now we come to the power houses of the league, the ones that put up the most points and score the most goals... the forwards. This week we have three new nominees that make the list. Two of the players are from Wilkes Barre and the other is from Stockton. Lets get on to the nominees.
