The SHL selected Hershey Bliss RW Christopher Hart as its Player of the Week. Hart is the second straight member of Hershey’s “Love Line” to capture the award, as teammate Justin Valentine was honored last week. Hart put up 3 goals and 6 assists this week, helping the Bliss post a 4-1-0 mark and narrow the gap atop the East.
On Saturday, Hart scored a goal and added two assists in Hershey’s 7-2 shellacking of Dakota. On Wednesday, he came through again with a goal and a pair of assists as the Bliss sank Seattle by a 4-1 margin.
“We’re coming together at the right time,” said Hershey coach “Chocolate Chip” Barber. “We haven’t mounted much of a challenge yet, but we’re about to. And if we can pull it off, it will be as sweet as a one-pound Krackel bar.”
