SHL Player of the Week – Week 6

Tuomas Nurmi

The SHL selected New York Night D Tuomas Nurmi as its Player of the Week. The Finnish-born blueliner was on fire this week, putting up 10 points (2 goals, 8 assists) on the week.  Nurmi’s big-scoring weeks nearly doubled his season point total (from 12 to 22) and earned him a promotion back to the Night’s top defensive pairing.

Nurmi scored at least a point in every New York game in the week.  His most impressive performance came on Wednesday, when he scored a goal and added two assists in the Night’s 6-5 overtime loss to Dakota.  On Tuesday, Nurmi had a pair of assists to help New York to a stunning 7-4 thrashing of Michigan.

“Tuomas is an offensive-minded defenseman, but he doesn’t neglect the other end,” said Night coach Nick Foster.  “He’s a tough, diligent, capable player and he has a terrific motor.  He’s really shown me something.”
