For the week of Feb. 2nd to Feb. 8th
Jimmy Lodge, F – Mississauga (OHL)
The Mississauga Steelheads are on a two‐game road winning streak and not without help from Jimmy Lodge. The 19‐year‐old, who was dealt to the Steelheads from Saginaw in November, posted six points (3G, 3A) last week with all his goals registered in the Steelheads’ pair of road wins. The Pennsylvanian product has found a home in Mississauga collecting 35 points (17G, 18A) in 29 games since the trade.
Jan Kostalek, D – Rimouski (QMJHL)
Defenceman Jan Kostalek isn’t normally the Jets’ prospect enjoying accolades from the QMJHL. However, it is him and not the Dane that has picked up weekly honours from the Quebec League. Patrolling the blue line for the Rimouski Oceanic, Kostalek collected three assists and a plus‐3 rating in three road games last week. He was not on the ice for any of the eight goals that Rimouski surrendered in that stretch. On the season, Kostalek has set QMJHL career‐highs with 25 assists and 29 points.
Jamie Phillips, G – Michigan Tech (WCHA)
The result was the same as the last weekend, but the Huskies sweep over Bemidji State on Feb. 6 & 7 was far more contested than their previous one. Goaltender Jamie Phillips was instrumental in a pair of wins over the Beavers, denying 52‐of‐54 shots against for a GAA of 1.00 and save percentage of .963.
Nikolaj Ehlers, F – Halifax (QMJHL)
Nik Ehlers will not likely win the QMJHL scoring title, but it isn’t for a lack of trying. The high‐flying winger averages more than two points per game this season with 72 (28G, 44A) through 35 games played. But with much time spent in international tournaments this season, his fellow leading scorers in the ‘Q’ have played more than 50 league games and already have totals nearing the 90‐point range. Ehlers maintained his impressive scoring pace last week with six points (2G, 4A) over three games.
Brenden Kichton, D – St. John’s (AHL)
Defenceman Brenden Kichton made his adjustment to the AHL look seamless in 2013‐14 as the former WHL standout recorded 48 points (10G, 38A) in his first season with St. John’s. For his efforts, he was named to the AHL All‐Rookie team in 2014. His sophomore season hasn’t gone as smoothly punctuated by a broken jaw suffered before the holiday break in December. He’s smoothly returned to the lineup since the injury recording four assists in seven games. This past week, Kichton recorded an assist on both of the goals St. John’s scored over a two‐game series versus Portland.
