Toronto native Brett Neumann, a forward with the Kingston Frontenacs, was named the OHL Player the Week.
The fourth-year veteran recorded eight points in three games for the week ending Dec. 9, including six goals and two assists and having a plus-minus rating of plus-six.
Neumann racked up back-to-back hat-trick performances and helped the Frontenacs win back-to-back games for the first time this season. After a tough 8-1 loss in London the night before, Neumann led Kingston to a 7-5 win in Sarnia on Saturday, scoring one of this three goals on a penalty shot and finishing the game with five points to earn the game’s first star.
The 19-year-old wrapped up the weekend by once again being named the first star in Kingston’s 4-1 win over the host Kitchener Rangers on Sunday. His hat trick included the game-winning goal.
Neumann, who was originally drafted by the Erie Otters in the third round of the 2015 OHL Priority Selection, is already enjoying the best season of his junior hockey career. He sits eighth overall in league scoring with 24 goals and 44 points, both career highs, in just 32 games.
