The SHL selected Hamilton Pistols LW Steven Alexander as its Player of the Week. Alexander recorded 11 points for the week – including 10 goals – allowing him to maintain the league lead in goals (with 52) and retake the league lead in points (with 64, passing New York’s Brock Manning). He is the only player in the league averaging more than a goal per game.
The Pistols are in last place in the East despite having three of the league leaders in points (Alexander, C Rod Remington, and RW Claude Lafayette, who form Hamilton’s top line). “With the top notch first line that we’ve got, I don’t see how we won’t be a champion eventually,” said Pistols D Raymond Smyth. “The rest of us have got to work on playing up to the example they set.”
