Senators' 2015 first-round pick Thomas Chabot was named the CHL's Player of the Week after registering 10 assists in 4 playoff games with the Saint John Sea Dogs.
From the CHL release:
Chabot produced three multi-point performances helping the Sea Dogs win two games last week in a tight QMJHL Quarter-Final series against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. He opened the week by tying a club record for assists by a defenceman with four as part of a 5-2 Game 3 victory on Monday earning second star honours. On Tuesday night he was held without a point in a 4-1 loss in Game 4, then picked up two assists on Friday despite a 4-3 loss in Game 5. Facing elimination, the Sea Dogs delivered a 5-4 victory on the road in Game 6 on Sunday with Chabot once again collecting four assists and second star honours. Game 7 of the series takes place on Tuesday night in Saint John.
A 19-year-old from Ste-Marie-de-Beauce, Quebec, Chabot is playing in his third career QMJHL season. Originally a second round pick of the Sea Dogs in the 2013 QMJHL Entry Draft, Chabot was taken in the first round by the Senators in the 2015 NHL Draft. He is currently fourth in QMJHL playoff scoring with 16 points in 11 games after finishing tied for 10th in scoring among defencemen with 45 points in 47 games.
Chabot will look to continue his productivity against Cape Breton in game 7 of their quarter-final match-up in the QMJHL playoffs tonight (April 19th) at 7 p.m. in Saint John (UPDATE: Chabot and Sea Dogs advanced to the semis with a 6-2 win last night). Before the puck drops on that game, here's a look at arguably the nicest of Chabot's 10 apples over the past 7 days:
