Player of the Week: Week 6
Welcome to the sixth edition of VGHL’s Season 20 Players of the Week. This week had lots of offensive firepower, but goaltenders didn’t get completely stomped either. Each position was able to have their moment to shine this week, and that makes for some great hockey. Nearing the end of the season, teams are trying to get into a hot streak and solidify top lines for their playoff run, or trying to lock up their wildcard position. And in order for any of that to happen, sometimes you need a star, and these are the players who stood out this week.
Akonvict21: 4 GP, 11 G, 16 A, 27 P, 6.75 PPG, +25, 4-0-0
Akonvict is one of, if not the best forward in the league, and he proved it this week. In just 4 games, this man had 27 points. Winning all 4 games he played this week, tallying 11 goals and 16 assists, Akon led all forwards in points. Normally, I don’t like giving players of the week to a person who only played 4 games, but i had to make an exception for this kind of performance. Especially cause he led all forward in points. Buffalo are the cup favourites, and if Akon can have performances like these for the rest of the season, no one’s stopping them.
Blades-I59I: 4 GP, 15 G, 11 A, 26 P, 6.50 PPG, +25, 4-0-0
MikehTheGod: 6 GP, 14 G, 11 A, 25 P, 4.17 PPG, +17, 6-0-0
S1234R: 6 GP, 9 G, 15 A, 24 P, 4.00 PPG, +7, 4-1-1
dabears77_7: 7 GP, 0 G, 15 A, 15 P, 2.14 PPG, +22, 6-1-0
Dabears makes his first appearance as the defender of the week. The Flyers are 9-1 in their last 10, and Dabears is a big reason for it. The Flyers currently sit in 2nd in the division and it would take a tremendous collapse for them to lose it. Bears tallied 15 assists this week in the 7 games he played and went 6-1. The Flyers are gonna want Bears to keep stepping it up heading into the playoffs, and I feel like he will. The Flyers are gonna be the x-factor in the playoffs, and they can very easily go deep and potentially even go head to head with the Sabres. Don’t count them out, cause I ain’t.

parky_8: 7 GP, 5-2-1, .822 SV%, 2.62 GAA, 2 SO
For the second straight week in a row, the Vegas Golden Knight starting goaltender has stolen the show. He led all goalies in save percentage with at least 4 GPs, and despite facing almost 18 shots per game, he still had a very solid 2.62 GAA. Parky has been on an incredible run this season and almost surely is a top candidate for the Vezina trophy, but I’m sure Parky has a lot more on his mind than just the Vezina. If he keeps it up, a Vegas cinderella run is looking more and more possible with the passing week
