Thunderbirds’ Scott Eansor named CHL Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey league today announced that forward Scott Eansor of the Seattle Thunderbirds is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending April 24 after scoring three goals in two games with a plus-minus rating of plus-3.

Eansor scored three of his club’s five goals on the road last week including both game-winners helping the Thunderbirds take a 2-0 series lead in the WHL’s Western Conference Championship against the Kelowna Rockets.  Eansor picked up a second period tally in Game 1 on Friday night as the Thunderbirds held on for a 2-1 win, then scored twice in Saturday’s Game 2 including a late third period marker that broke a 2-2 tie earning first star honours in the 3-2 triumph.  The Thunderbirds and Rockets resume their best-of-seven battle Tuesday and Wednesday night in Seattle.

A 20-year-old from Engelwood, Colorado, Eansor is playing in his third WHL campaign with the Thunderbirds.  The 2016 U.S. National Junior Team member has seven goals and two assists for nine points in 11 games so far this post-season after producing 42 points in 55 regular season contests.

Also considered for the award this week was 2016 NHL Draft prospect Matthew Tkachuk of the London Knights who scored four goals and two assists for six points in two games of the OHL’s Western Conference Championship Series against the Erie Otters.  In the QMJHL, Boston Bruins prospect Jakub Zboril of the Saint John Sea Dogs scored once with four assists for five points in three games including a Game 7 triumph over the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles and two games against the Shawinigan Cataractes in the QMJHL Semi-Finals.
