SHL Player of the Week – Week 12

nicklas-ericsson
Nicklas Ericsson

Anchorage SmallThe SHL selected Anchorage Igloos RW Nicklas Ericsson as its Player of the Week.  Ericsson had one of the most prolific offensive weeks in SHL history, putting up an astounding 16 points, with 6 goals and 10 assists.  Ericsson put up his first career hat trick on Sunday, powering the Igloos to a 6-3 win over Seattle.  He also had a pair of three-assist games in the season’s final week, once on Tuesday in a 5-1 pasting of Dakota and again during the season finale, a 5-1 win over Michigan.  In between, he had a two-goal, two-assist game as Anchorage shellacked Saskatchewan 8-2.

Ericsson finished the season with 82 points, which put him fourth in the league.  His 63 assists were second only to Chase Winchester of New York, who set a new league record with 88 assists (and also won the league points title with 104, another new record).

“Because Jake [Frost] is the big goal scorer, he’s usually the one who gets all the attention and all the credit,” said Igloos coach Sam Castor.  “But Nicklas is the one feeding him for all those chances, and he’s the best in the business.  We came up short this year, but it wasn’t for lack of trying on Jake or Nicklas’ part.”
