Player of the Week: Week 8
Welcome to the last edition of VGHL’s Season 21 Players of the Week for the regular season. I may do a couple for the playoffs, but we’ll see. With playoff positions now officially locked up, players and managers prepare for their upcoming matchups. There are the clear favourites as to who’s going to win the cup this season, but it’s really anyone’s cup to win. The playoffs are going to be fun to watch, but before we get there, let’s see who outperformed the rest in the last 2 half weeks of the season.
xBeanZy-: 4 GP, 14 G, 10 A, 24 P, 6.00 PPG, +16, 4-0-0
The on ice leader for the Montreal Canadiens, Beanzy enters the playoffs on an absolute tear. On a pace of 6 points per game in the last 2 half weeks of the season, the Montreal Canadiens couldn’t be happier that Bean is catching his hot streak just in time for the playoffs. If Bean is able to put up these type of numbers in the playoffs, the Habs should have no issue making it deep in the playoffs, and opposing teams are going to need to make sure Bean is not the guy who beats them.
Chico-Bean-Vert: 6 GP, 11 G, 13 A, 24 P, 4.00 PPG, +14, 4-1-1
LaddyDaddy16: 6 GP, 13 G, 9 A, 22 P, 3.67 PPG, +14, 4-1-1
j_sherminator: 3 GP, 8 G, 10 A, 18 P, 6.00 PPG, +9, 2-1-0
lXx_Scoop_xXl: 6 GP, 0 G, 13 A, 13 P, 2.17 PPG, +3, 4-2-0
The Flyers were able to lock up 3rd place in the division, and will face the Washington Capitals in the first round. Scoop has been a great player for the Flyers this season, and he was the best among the rest for all defenders, as he had an incredible week. While he wasn’t able to get many goals, he was still able to add 13 apples to his statsheet, and will roll into the playoffs on a great offensive streak.
rockshow84: 5 GP, 1 G, 9 A, 10 P, 2.00 PPG, +11, 4-1-0
rich2k8: 5 GP, 1 G, 8 A, 9 P, 1.80 PPG, +3, 3-2-0
Xjonsy-: 3 GP, 3 G, 6 A, 9 P, 3.00 PPG, +9, 2-1-0
chadkillz134: 4 GP, 4-0-0, .923 SV%, 1.25 GAA, 1 SO
Chadkillz makes his final case for a potential Vezina nominee at the end of the season, as he and the Habs will enter the playoffs with 2 players on significant hotstreaks. Going 4-0 in the last 2 half weeks of the season and stopping over 92% of shots, opposing teams are going to have a difficult time trying to solve the Canadiens. Not only do they need to contain the offensive star in Bean, but they’ll then have to figure out how to score on Chad. The Habs have a very good chance at going deep in the playoffs, but they’ll need their 2 superstars to continue their amazing production.
