The SHL selected Quebec Tigres RW Stephane Mirac as its Player of the Week. The Tigres had an exceptional week, going 4-0-1 to move within four points of Hamilton for the division lead. And Mirac was the engine that drove the Tigres’ offensive success, scoring 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists). Mirac now has 29 goals this season, which places him among the league’s top 10 in that category.
Quebec won both ends of a home-and-home with Washington this week, both by 5-2 scores. On Sunday in DC, Mirac had 2 goals and an assists; then on Tuesday at Centre Citadelle, he notched a hat trick and added an assist. Then on Wednesday, Mirac scored twice and assisted four times as the Tigres bombed Boston, 9-0.
“Stephane Miracle is back again,” said Tigres C Mikhail Ilyushin. “He is an offensive force of nature. Sometimes, I think he shoots so hard that he puts it through the goalie.”
