The SHL selected Anchorage Igloos C Jake Frost as its Player of the Week. Frost finished the season with a bang, scoring 12 points (7 goals, 5 assists), a total made all the more impressive by the fact that he played in only four of the Igloos’ five games this week. His most impressive day came on Tuesday, when he scored four goals and added four assists in Anchorage’s division-clinching 9-1 stomping of Saskatchewan.
Frost’s final-week burst of scoring allowed him to finish with a league-leading 47 goals. His 80 points was good for fourth in the league, trailing Igloos teammates Jerry Koons and Nicklas Ericsson and Hamilton’s Calvin Frye. Frost led Anchorage to its second Congress Trophy as the Igloos racked up 90 points, the most in SHL history.
“Jake is a really remarkable player,” said Koons. “He’s an elite scorer, but he’s totally unselfish. He’s willingly taken a step back to allow guys like me and Nicky and Collie [Les Collins] to grow to our fullest potential. But make no mistake, at the end of the day it’s still Jake’s team.”
