Guelph Storm forward Hunter Garlent named Canadian Hockey League player of week

TORONTO - Guelph Storm forward Hunter Garlent was named Canadian Hockey League player of the week Tuesday.

Garlent, a 17-year-old from Thorold, Ont., scored three goals and added five assists last week. He helped the Storm record three wins over the stretch as Guelph (9-2-0-1) moved into top spot in the Ontario Hockey League's Western Conference.

Colin Smith of the Western Hockey League's Kamloops Blazers and Petr Straka of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar were also considered for the honour.

Jordon Cooke of the Kelowna Rockets was named CHL goaltender of the week. He posted a 2-0-0-0 record last week.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
