The SHL selected New York Night RW Chase Winchester as its Player of the Week. Winchester scored 9 points (including 8 assists) on the week, leading New York to a 4-2-0 record and catapulting the Night into second in the Eastern division.
Winchester now has a total of 40 assists on the season, second in the SHL to Hamilton’s Claude Lafayette, and has recorded a total of 53 points, tied for second in the league.
“Chase is a premier facilitator,” said Night C Brock Manning. “He definitely has the shot and the skill to be one of the league’s top scorers, but he knows that on our team, he can be the most helpful to us by setting up me and Rick [Nelson]. We’re a dangerous team, I can tell you that.”
