Huskies’ Francis Perron named CHL Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Ottawa Senators prospect Francis Perron of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending May 15 after scoring once with four assists for five points in two games with a plus-minus rating of plus-1.

Perron recorded back-to-back multi-point performances last week for the QMJHL Champion Huskies who captured their first President Cup in a 4-1 series win over the Shawinigan Cataractes.  In Game 4 of the series last Tuesday he scored once with an assist despite a 6-4 loss, then tallied three assists earning first star honours in the 7-2 victory in Thursday’s Game 5.  The Huskies captain claimed the Guy Lafleur Trophy as MVP of the QMJHL Playoffs and will now compete in the 2016 MasterCard Memorial Cup in Red Deer opening competition on Saturday May 21 against the WHL Champion Brandon Wheat Kings.

A 20-year-old from Rosemère, QC, Perron is playing in his fourth career QMJHL season with the Huskies.  He led the QMJHL Playoffs in scoring with 33 points in 18 games including 12 goals and 21 assists after earning QMJHL Player of the Year honours with 108 points in 62 games during the 2015-16 regular season campaign.  Perron was selected by the Senators in the seventh round of the 2014 NHL Draft.

Also considered for the award this week was defenceman Jacob Graves of the London Knights who recorded five assists in the final two games of the OHL Championship Series against the Niagara IceDogs, and Edmonton Oilers prospect defenceman Ethan Bear of the Seattle Thunderbirds who scored once with four assists for five points in three games of the WHL Championship Series against the Brandon Wheat Kings.
