Devils prospect Pavel Zacha has been named OHL Player of the Week for the week ending November 22 after scoring three goals and three assists for six points in two games with the Sarnia Sting.

Zacha helped the Sting win both games last week extending the club’s winning-streak to three and improving their record to 13-7-2-0 where they stand second place in the West Division standings with 28 points. His week was highlighted by a career-high five-point performance on Saturday night scoring his first career hat-trick and adding two assists as first star of a 6-2 win over the Niagara IceDogs. On Friday night Zacha picked up an assist on the Sting’s lone goal scored by Jeff King in the club’s 1-0 triumph over the Owen Sound Attack.

An 18-year-old from Brno, Czech Republic, Zacha is playing in his second OHL season with the Sting after being chosen first overall by the club in the 2014 CHL Import Draft. The sixth-overall pick of the Devils in the 2015 NHL Draft has already signed his entry-level contract with the club and currently leads the Sting in scoring with 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points in 17 games.
