Week 5 MVPs


P. J. Coholan (Hawks) - This week's MVP was awarded to one of our defensemen, P. J. Coholan! He had many end to end rushes creating scoring chances. His goal came from a lazar of a shot from the point helping the Hawks to a 5-1 win. Great goal and game P. J. !


Laura Ross (Canucks) - On a night where goals were hard to come by, Laura skillfully cut through the Hawks defence, like her hero and fashion role model cuts through the seas, and scored the Canucks' lone goal.  Several reports state that the crowds in the arena were silenced in awe of her prowess.



Gillian Goodwin (Oilers) – Gillian was more than good on Saturday – she was great. Opened the scoring with a breakaway goal, she was a dominant presence in both the offensive and defensive zones and lead the Oilers to a 3-1 win. Great game Gill!


Deanna Williams (Canadiens) - This week's MVP Deanna earned her buffalo chicken fingers and Caesar salad at Silks!  She started out in goal, covering for Geoff as he was still lacing up his skates as the game started. Then her ever presence on Defense, followed by her rushes up with puck netted her our lone goal. Her persistence and determination on the ice and her leadership on the bench earned this GM the MVP of the week!


Dan O'Callaghan (Bruins) – Dan paced his team to their first win of the season with a natural 🎩 trick performance! Naturally, he is this week’s golden bucket winner!


Kelly Rigby (Leafs) -  Kelly was great on defense Saturday night shutting down the opposition. What was really impressive was how she was firing her cannon from the point several times, with one resulting in a goal.  Great work Kelly!


Melissa Cohen White (Flyers) - A switch to right wing proved favourable to both Melissa and the team as her hard work paid off and she netted her first GHL goal helping the Flyers to a win against a tough Rangers team. Way to go Melissa!


Bekki Matte (Rangers) -  Bekki had a big game this week with what seemed like 10 shots. Although she didn't score, she was a pain to the goalie.  Bekki also played well in the neutral zone. Keep it up Bekki!


Lisa Taylor (Penguins) – Lisa she did a great job predicting the play this week - helping her to break up several of the opponents’ plays. Her quick feet kept her in the heart of the game both offensively and defensively. Go Lisa!


Jessica Baxter (Wings) - Jessica connected well with Bob for a sweet goal upstairs on the sprawling goaltender.  Continued skating while putting pucks on the net will bode well for this rushing right winter.


Young Guns Line (Flames) - Congratulations to Tyler, Josh, and Daryl for an amazing tic-tac-toe goal last Saturday night.  It seems as if this line clicks very well with each other and when asked for comment, they were overheard stating "we get all our sick moves from EA Sports NHL 2017, it's in the game."


Rob Peto (Sabres) - With limited ice time (and I mean limited ice time this year), Rob came through with a great game and kept the Flames off the score sheet for the most part and the Sabres to the win.
