The SHL selected Washington Galaxy RW Jefferson McNeely as its Player of the Week. The Galaxy had an amazing week, going 5-0-0 and moving within two points of first-place Hershey, and McNeely’s performance was key to Washington’s week.
McNeely scored 9 points on the week (3 goals, 6 assists). On Friday, McNeely became one of the few players in SHL history to record a five-point game (2 goals, 3 assists) in Washington’s 6-2 rout of Dakota. On the season, his 34 points is second-highest on the team behind C Eddie Costello, and his 15 goals is second to LW Casey Thurman.
“He’s just a joy to watch,” said Galaxy coach Rodney Reagle of McNeely. “He has an electric star’s presence. The whole arena just lights up every time he goes out on the ice. Just an incredible talent.”
