SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Toronto Marlies forward Joey Crabb was been named the American Hockey League player of the week Monday.

The 27-year-old scored three goals and added two assists in two games with Toronto (4-1-1) last week to win the award.

Crabb is tied for the team high with 12 points (six goals, six assists) and a plus-6 rating.

He is also tied with Marlies teammate Joe Colborne for second in the AHL in points.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
