Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that 2016 NHL Draft prospect Logan Brown of the Windsor Spitfires is the Pioneer Energy OHL Player of the Week for the week ending February 28 after recording seven points in three games including four goals and three assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-2.
Brown continued his offensive production with a trio of multi-point performances last week giving him five-straight and totalling 12 points in that span. On Thursday night he earned first star honours in a 4-2 victory over the Barrie Colts scoring the game-winning goal and adding an assist, then picked up two assists on Saturday as part of a 6-4 win over the Flint Firebirds. Brown finished his week by notching his first career hat-trick on Sunday in a 4-3 victory over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds tallying the game-winning goal and claiming first star honours. The Spitfires have now won five-straight but remain in second place in the West Division standings with 78 points through 60 games trailing the Sarnia Sting by one point.
A native of Chesterfield, Missouri, Brown is playing in his second career OHL season with the Spitfires. The 6’6’’ power forward turns 18 on Saturday and is second in team scoring with 62 points in 51 games including 16 goals and 46 assists. Brown was listed 14th among North American Skaters by NHL Central Scouting in January’s Midterm Rankings for the 2016 NHL Draft.
Fellow Spitfire Christian Fischer was also considered for the award this week along with Mitch Marner of the London Knights. The Arizona Coyotes prospect matched Brown’s production with four goals and three assists for seven points in three games for the Spitfires, while the Toronto Maple Leafs prospect scored twice with five assists for seven points in three games for the Knights eclipsing the 100-point milestone for the second straight season. In goal, Devin Williams of the Erie Otters went 2-0-0-0 including one shutout with a goals-against-average of 0.50, save percentage of .973, and set a new franchise record for wins in a season with 37.
