Player of the Week: Week 5
Welcome to the fifth edition of VGNHL’s Season 22 Players of the Week. Merry Christmas, happy holidays everyone. For those who get to spend time with family and friends, enjoy the time off and the company! For those whose holiday times are tough for them, I hope you guys are able to get through this, and remember to reach out if you ever need. Before we got into the holidays though, teams battled it out for position before heading into the break. Teams wanted to go into the holidays with as much momentum as possible, to come back firing when the break is over. So without further ado, let’s see who was able to catch fire heading into the holidays.
Capitalsfan_08: 8 GP, 15 G, 18 A, 33 P, 4.13 PPG, +24, 7-0-1
The owner of the Colorado Avalanche, Capitalsfan leads by example on the ice this past week, leading all forwards in points with 33. With 15 goals and 18 assists, Capsfan did it all for his team and is showing week in and week out that Colorado isn’t just a one man show in Blades. It’s a whole team performance that is decimating the entire league and as of right now, I still don’t see anyone who can stop them.
Heroic_veil2: 5 GP, 11 G, 11 A, 22 P, 4.40 PPG, +8, 5-0-0
Akonvict21: 6 GP, 12 G, 13 A, 25 P, 4.17 PPG, +12, 6-0-0
Murhwizzle: 7 GP, 11 G, 13 A, 24 P, 3.43 PPG, +19, 6-0-1
Kylo_Reli: 5 GP, 5 G, 15 A, 20 P, 4.00 PPG, +18, 4-1-0
Reli earns his second straight defender of the week award with an amazing performance in just 5 games he played. Going 4-1, he was able to keep his goal per game pace while adding 15 assists for an absurd 4 points per game. If Reli keeps this up, he may need to make more room on his trophy case, as a Norris trophy may just be added to his collection. For now, he’ll just have to settle for a defender of the week badge, while the Sharks continue to roll through most of their competition.
SNAKE_-_PLISSKIN-: 5 GP, 0 G, 11 A, 11 P, 2.20 PPG, +22, 5-0-0
RunLikeHeii-: 8 GP, 4 G, 8 A, 12 P, 1.50 PPG, +10, 4-4-0
bxnana–: 5 GP, 1 G, 10 A, 11 P, 2.20 PPG, +10, 4-0-1
PNCPark2k1: 4 GP, 4-0-0, .868 SV%, 1.24 GAA, 1 SO
Long time VGNHL veteran PNCPark earns himself his first badge of the season with a tremendous week for the Arizona Coyotes. The Arizona owner went a perfect 4-0 with a .868 save percentage and 1.24 goals against average, both which led all goaltenders on the week. While not always known for being one who can steal games consistently game in and game out, he is now. PNC may have found a new resurgence in his career and could be heading to a deep playoff run with the Coyotes.
NHLBEAST-: 5 GP, 5-0-0, .848 SV%, 1.38 GAA, 1 SO
Bray4x_Fyb: 6 GP, 5-1-0, .836 SV%, 1.90 GAA, 2 SO
x-Andersxn-_-: 5 GP, 4-0-1, .833 SV%, 2.19 GAA, 1 SO
