Aaron Luchuk – Windsor Spitfires – | 23 GP 21g 19a 40pts +2 |
Luchuk is off to another tremendous start in his fourth full season in Windsor. He leads the league in goals, with 21 in 23 games, and is second in points with 37. He scored a career high 28 last year, he’s on pace to double that. Luchuk has been Windsor’s primary offensive producer this season, while also handling leadership responsibilities as team captain.
Justin Fazio – Sarnia Sting – | 18GP 15-2-1 2.58gaa .928sv% 1SO |
Fazio helped backstop the Sing to the best start in the Canadian Hockey League. He also helped snap Sarnia’s modest three game losing streak with his second shutout of the season last week with a 39 save effort. He’s made 30 or more saves in 12 of his 15 wins this season. He leads the league in victories (15) and save percentage (.928%).
Jeremy Helvig – Kingston Frontenacs – | 18 GP 10-5-0 2.57gaa .919sv% |
Helvig will be one to watch throughout the season. As he goes, so does the Fronts’. Kingston had their five game winning streak snapped on the weekend, where Helvig allowed just six goals during that stretch. Kingston’s 64 goals against is among the fewest in the league, and Helvig is a large part of that low number. Will he be in Kingston past January is curious. He’s obviously crucial to Kingston’s success, but he could fetch a King’s ransom at the deadline this season, especially with a poor goalie market. HE’s among the league leaders in most goaltending categories.
Sam Miletic – London Knights – | 18GP 7g 19a 26pts +9 |
Miletic has points in eight straight games (4g 11a), and has been a major factor in London’s quick turnaround. He’s only been held off the scoresheet once in his last dozen games. He’s been streaky during his OHL career, including a scoreless 12 games during last year’s playoffs. When he’s hot, he’s hot, and that’s been the case the last month or so.
Marcus Crawford – Saginaw Spirit – | 22GP 6g 14a 20pts +6 |
Saginaw has won seven of their last ten as it looks like they’ve turned things around after a dreadful start. Marcus Crawford has been a big reason for this. After just four points in his first seven games, he has 16 points in 15 games since. By the way the Spirit lost those first seven games, they’ve since won ten of their last 15.
