Two Rangers Prospects Win Player of Week Honors

Christian Thomas had a poor start to the 2011-12 season, but the 20010 second round pick was on fire last week with three goals and six assists in just two games for the Oshawa Generals.  That performance was good enough to land Thomas the Ontario Hockey League Player of the Week award.  With the huge week Thomas now has 11 goals and 13 assists for 24 points in 20 games so far this season.

Not to be outdone was 2011 fourth round pick Michael St. Croix was announced as the Western Hockey League's Player of the Week.  St. Croix racked up eight points, three goals and five assists in three wins for his Edmonton Oil Kings.  St. Croix continues his tremendous season now amassing 16 goals and 25 assists in 29 games for the Oil Kings.
