The SHL selected Hershey Bliss RW Noah Daniels as its Player of the Week. Daniels had a 10-point week (7 goals, 3 assists), a particularly remarkable feat for a player who came into the week having scored only 25 points on the season. Thanks to Daniels’ hard work, the Bliss went 4-1-0 on the week and jumped back into first place in the East.
On Sunday, Daniels turned in his first career hat trick, contributing to Hershey’s 7-1 pummeling of Hamilton. (More on that game here.) On Tuesday, the winger scored two more goals and added three assists as the Bliss shredded Quebec 9-2. And on Friday, Daniels scored two more to help Hershey tip New York 4-3.
“Noah’s a real fighter,” said Bliss coach “Chocolate Chip” Barber. “He may not be the biggest or most gifted player out there, but he’s out there working hard every shift and clawing for every opportunity. He’s made himself a player, and he deserves all the recognition he can get.”
