What a week for Andrew Mangiapane.
With 11 points in three games, he became just the fourth player in Barrie Colts history to score 50 goals in a single season, surpassed the 100-point mark for the second consecutive year, and helped push the Colts' winning streak to seven games.
Mangiapane, the Calgary Flames' sixth round pick in 2015, now has 101 points through 56 games this year and is three goals shy of Colts' single-season record of 53, a milestone set by Bryan Cameron in the 2009-10 campaign.
The winger kicked off his week with a one-goal, four-point effort in the Colts 8-1 rout over the Owen Sound Attack on Wednesday. He was named the game's first star.
He followed that up with another four-point performance against the Sudbury Wolves on Friday. Mangiapane scored the Colts second goal of the night, had three assists, and was named the first star in Barrie's 7-3 win.
He capped off the week by scoring his 49th and 50th goals of the season in a 5-2 victory over the Peterborough Petes. He also had one assist in the win and was once again named the game's first star.
"It’s definitely a great feeling," Mangiapane told the Barrie Examiner’s Stephen Sweet after scoring his 50th goal of the year. "It was definitely one of my goals at the beginning of the season to hit 100 points (which I did in the second period) again, and it was great."
"50 goals was the cherry on top, and it’s a great feeling and I’m thankful for it."
In addition to Mangiapane's personal milestones, the Colts clinched first place in the Central Division for the third time in four seasons this past week. They hold a 42-20-2 record with four games remaining in their regular season schedule.
