Nine points in three games has Calgary Flames prospect Andrew Mangiapane in the spotlight for a second straight week.
The 19-year-old, who was the Flames' sixth round pick in 2015, posted three points in every game he played last week, including scoring his Ontario Hockey League-leading fifth hat trick during that torrid stretch. He is second in team scoring in Barrie with 39 goals and 75 points in 44 games.
Last Wednesday, Mangiapane was named the second star in a 5-0 Barrie win over Owen Sound. He has three primary assists in the victory and was credited with two shots on net that night.
On Friday, the Toronto, ON native played a key role in Barrie's 7-6 comeback win over the Hamilton Bulldogs. After Hamilton jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the first period, the Colts pushed back and managed to get a goal on the power play with under 2:00 to go in the frame. Shortly after that, Mangiapane closed the gap to a single goal at the 19:03 mark.
Barrie was able to tie the game up early in the middle stanza but Hamilton scored three goals before the period came to a close. But the Colts were undeterred and Mangiapane kicked off the comeback in the third period with a short-handed goal 2:15 into the frame. He also picked up an assist on the game-tying goal by Kevin Lebanc at 12:27.
Mangiapane was the game's third star on Friday.
In the Colts final game of the week, Mangiapane netted a hat trick in a 5-1 Barrie victory against Guelph. He scored the game's first two goals and capped off the night with a short-handed marker at 4:53 of the third period. As expected, he was the game's first star.
With 75 points on the year, Mangiapane is seventh in the OHL scoring race. He has points in 18 of his last 19 games and has amassed 23 goals and 40 points in that span.
