Player of the Week: Week 3
Welcome to the third edition of VGHL’s Season 21 Players of the Week. There was a lot of offence this week, for both forwards and defenseman. But that doesn’t mean every goaltender got lit up. Some were able to handle the offensive onslaught and have stellar week themselves. So without wasting anymore time, let’s get into them.
Blades-l59l: 5 GP, 18 G, 16 A, 34 P, 6.80 PPG, +17, 5-0-0
Despite only playing 5 games this past week, Blades was still able to have himself an incredible week, leading all forwards in points with 34. With 18 goals and 16 assists, aiding himself to a perfect 5-0 week. Everyone knows the Buffalo Sabres are the defending champs, and by definition are the team to beat. If Blades can keep up performances like this every week, it’s going to be difficult for any team to even try to contain him.
xBeanZy-: 6 GP, 19 G, 13 A, 32 P, 5.33 PPG, +16, 6-0-0
VegaRidge: 8 GP, 12 G, 17 A, 29 P, 3.63 PPG, +15, 6-0-2
Boughs: 5 GP, 5 G, 23 A, 28 P, 5.60 PPG, +18, 5-0-0
DudNastyy: 6 GP, 3 G, 15 A, 18 P, 3.00 PPG, +19, 6-0-0
The Nashville Predators are currently tied for first place in the entire league, and a big part of that is because of Dud. Having an incredible week three himself with 3 goal and 15 assists, he helps Nashville extend their 13 game winning streak. The Nashville Predators have been one of the most dominant teams all season, and with Dud leading the charge on the blueline, teams need to figure out how to not only get by him, but stop him from chipping in on offence as well.
Fluri37: 5 GP, 1 G, 14 A, 15 P, 3.00 PPG, +15, 5-0-0
kylej83: 8 GP, 3 G, 12 A, 15 P, 1.88 PPG, +1, 5-3-0
SMiiRK-_-: 4 GP, 3 G, 7 A, 10 P, 2.50 PPG, +13, 4-0-0
Binny_50: 5 GP, 5-0-0, .863 SV%, 1.78 GAA, 1 SO
Going a perfect 5-0 this week, Binny has himself a great week, allowing less than 2 goals per game and earning himself a .864 save percentage. The Calgary Flames have gone on a tear lately, winning their last 6 games. A big reason for that was Binny’s stellar goaltending. Only time will tell if Binny will be able to keep this up week in and week out in an offence heavy league, but he had a good enough week 3 to earn himself goaltender of the week.
