The SHL selected Anchorage Igloos C Jake Frost as its Player of the Week. Frost had an incredible week, scoring 12 points (5 goals, 7 assists) and leading the Igloos to an undefeated week that lengthened their lead in the West to 6 points. On Sunday, Frost scored twice and added an assist in the Igloos’ 5-1 win over Seattle. On Wednesday, he had a four-point day (two goals, two assists) to lead Anchorage’s 6-1 beatdown of Hershey. Then on Friday, Frost scored the Igloos’ first goal in a key 3-2 overtime win over Michigan.
Frost has resumed his place among the league;s top scorers. His 37 goals leads the league, and his 61 points is third in the league overall, behind teammates Jerry Koons and Nicklas Ericsson. It’s only the second time in SHL history that the top three point scorers in the league have all played for the same team. (The Hamilton Pistols had the top four point scorers for a couple weeks last month.)
“We’ve got a lot of good scorers here, but in the end, it’s still Jake’s team,” said Ericsson. “If it’s Game 7 of the Finals, Jake’s the guy we all want taking the big shot. He’s our star, and we all know that.”
