Brett Ritchie of Niagara IceDogs named Canadian Hockey League player of the week

TORONTO - Niagara IceDogs forward Brett Ritchie was named Canadian Hockey League player of the week Wednesday after recording 13 points over a three-game stretch.

Ritchie became the first player in franchise history to record back-to-back hat tricks last week. He had 10 goals, three assists and a plus-7 rating.

The 19-year-old from Orangeville, Ont., was selected in the second round of last year's NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars.

Josh Currie of the P.E.I. Rocket and Justin Feser of the Tri-City Americans were also considered for the weekly honour.

Also Wednesday, Philippe Cadorette of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar was named CHL goaltender of the week. He posted a 2-0-0-0 record with a goals-against average of 1.50 and save percentage of .954.

Daniel Altshuller of the Oshawa Generals and Eric Williams of the Spokane Chiefs were the other nominees.

Quote of the Day
