PLAYER OF THE WEEK

‘Twas a bit of an unspectacular week, in terms of individual performances, quite possibly because the Charlotte Checkers (four) and Hershey Bears (three) were the only teams in our focus group to have played more than twice during the applicable time span. Nevertheless, Hershey’s Brian Willsie gets top recognition this week for his two-goal, five-point performance in a trio of games for the Bears. Patrick McNeill was also solid for Hershey, tallying once and assisting three other times and Kyle Greentree managed three goals. Charlotte’s Chris Terry (3-1-4) also gets a secondary tip o’ the cap.
