The SHL selected Hamilton Pistols C Calvin Frye as its Player of the Week. For the week, Frye collected 11 points (4 goals, 7 assists). With his performance, the sophomore center is now the league leaders in points (23) and assists (17). Frye’s heroics led the Pistols to a 4-1-0 week that lifted them into second place in the highly competitive East.
On Thursday, Frye notched three assists, keying Hamilton to a 6-1 thumping of division rival Quebec. The next night, Frye potted a pair of goals and assisted on another as the Pistols shot down Washington 5-1 to claim sole possession of second.
“It’s hard to believe Calvin’s only in his second year, because he plays like a ten-year veteran,” said teammate Steven Alexander. “He’s like a point guard… he can see the whole ice from above and sees plays develop before they happen. His passes are a thing of beauty… tape-to-tape, threading the needle. He makes the top line click.”
