SHL Player of the Week – Week 14

Calvin Frye

The SHL selected Hamilton Pistols C Calvin Frye as its Player of the Week.  The Player of the Week Award has been dominated by the Pistols lately; LW Steven Alexander received the honor three times in the past four weeks, and G Lasse Koskinen was selected a couple weeks before that.  Hamilton had an undefeated week, and Frye’s 8 points (5 goals, 3 assists) were one of the key catalysts for that success.  Frye now has 45 goals and 83 points on the season, both good for second in the SHL.

Frye had a hat trick along with an assist on Tuesday, leading the way in the Pistols’ 6-4 win over Kansas City.  On Thursday, he scored the first goal and assisted on two others as Hamilton took a key 4-0 decision over rival New York.  Then on Saturday, Frye scored the lone goal of the game in a 1-0 victory over another rival, Quebec.

“What Calvin’s been able to do and how he’s grown over the years, that’s been a huge blessing for us,” said Pistols coach Keith Shields.  “He’s a great scorer, he’s a great passer, he plays heads-up defense, and he’s a leader in the locker room.  He can’t carry a tune, but that’s about all he can’t do.”
