Welcome to players of the week, week 5 KHL edition. There are only 2 days left in the season and we’re about to be in for a fun set of playoff matchups. Teams are still trying to play for positioning and first place is still up for grabs for 2 teams. However, there were certain players last week who helped their teams more than others, and here they are.
toslick: 5 GP, 21 G, 16 A, 37 P, 7.40 PPG, +31, 5-0-0
Toslick for the third week in a row. He has been lighting up the league by storm and just putting up points night in and night out. With a 21 goal, 16 assist performance and not losing a single game last week, toslick was the best forward of the week without a doubt. He will need to continue his momentum for the last few games of the season to clinch first place, but more importantly in the playoffs if Adler wants a deep run.
Kylo_Reli: 5 GP, 12 G, 15 A, 27 P, 5.40 PPG, +20, 5-0-0
Fluri37: 5 GP, 8 G, 18 A, 26 P, 5.20 PPG, +31, 5-0-0
j_sherminator: 5 GP, 5 G, 14 A, 19 P, 3.80 PPG, +18, 5-0-0
MLG-Owen: 5 GP, 0 G, 9 A, 9 P, 1.80 PPG, +31, 5-0-0
Yet another Adler player, this time it is their owner winning a player of the week award. MLG-Owen had a great week in basically the last week of the season, winning all 5 of his games and adding 9 assists to his totals. It is very difficult to tell who on Adler is standing out as they all just feed off of each other, but they are 100% the team to watch come playoff time. There’s still a few games left in the season, but they have the most fire power heading into the playoffs.
pucku33: 4 GP, 2 G, 7 A, 9 P, 2.25 PPG, +1, 2-2-0
String_King666: 7 GP, 0 G, 6 A, 6 P, 0.86 PPG, +12, 5-2-0
dophares2000: 5 GP, 5-0-0, .872 SV%, 1.20 GAA, 0 SO
Dophares takes the final player of the week for goaltenders of the regular season. Dophares had a tremendous week, going 5-0 with a 1.20 goals against average and a .872 save percentage. Dophares stood on his head this week and propelled Jukurit to a comfy spot in 3rd place. Jukurit is going to need Dophares to have these types of performances in the playoffs to give them a good shot at winning the cup, and we will find out if Doug is up to the task.
