The SHL selected New York Night C Brock Manning as its Player of the Week. For the week, Manning scored 6 goals and contributed 4 assists. Manning now leads the SHL in both goals (with 19) and overall points (with 29).
Manning is a cousin of Super Bowl-winning quarterback Peyton Manning. “You can definitely see the bloodlines at work there,” said Night coach Preston Rivers. “He’s a born leader, and he’s always willing to do what it takes to win. If somebody’s open, he can make the perfect pass. If it’s his chance, he’s not afraid to call his own number.
“Whatever we’re going to achieve this year and going forward, he’s going to take us there.”
