Flint Firebirds captain Ty Dellandrea has been named the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week, putting up six goals and 11 points over three games.

Dellandrea helped the Firebirds take four of a possible six points on a three game weekend road trip with stops in Barrie, Sudbury and North Bay, recording a pair of four-point performances along with a three-point effort.

The fourth-year centreman recorded his second hat-trick of the season, tacking on an assist for four points in Flint’s 5-2 win over the Barrie Colts on Thursday.

He chipped in with a goal and two assists, earning third star honours as the Firebirds fell 8-5 to the Sudbury Wolves on Friday, a game that saw him take an incredible 46 faceoffs while winning 29 of them.

Dellandrea scored twice and added two assists in Sunday’s 5-3 win over the North Bay Battalion, scoring the game winner 5:50 into the third period.

The Dallas Stars prospect recently became the all-time leading scorer in Flint Firebirds history. He has 37 points (17-20–37) over 27 games this season and will attend Canada’s National Junior Team Selection Camp this week in Oakville, Ont.

Originally a first round (5th overall) pick of the Firebirds in 2016, Dellandrea was selected by the Dallas Stars with the 13th overall pick of the 2018 NHL Draft.

A pair of goaltenders were also considered for the award this week including Cedrick Andree of the Ottawa 67’s who played to a 2-0 record, registering a shutout along with a 0.50 goals-against average and .981 save percentage. Peterborough Petes netminder Hunter Jones was also solid, going 2-0 with a 1.50 goals-against average and a .951 save percentage.
