The SHL selected New York Night D Dominic Sanchez as its Player of the Week. Sanchez had an impressive week on offense, scoring 12 points (2 goals, 10 assists). On Sunday, Sanchez notched 3 assists in a 6-4 loss to Hamilton. On Tuesday, he scored twice and added a pair of assists as the Night thrashed Washington 9-4. The next night, he had 3 apples as New York claimed a wild 7-5 win over Hershey.
Thanks to his productive week, Sanchez is now the league leader in assists with 17. His 19 total points is second in the SHL, behind only Washington’s Jefferson McNeely.
“People don’t talk about Dom when they talk about the best D-men in the league, but they should,” said Night coach Nick Foster. “There aren’t a lot of blueliners with the nose for offense that he has. He’s got great speed, and he knows how to set guys up for scores. He’s an underrated weapon.”
