Mooseheads Stars of the Week
3.Nathan MacKinnon (3 Assists) – Quiet by his standards, but MacKinnon continues to click with Drouin and took that game to the national stage against Russia.
2. Jonathan Drouin (3 Goals, 3 Assists) – He’s been wowing Mooseheads fans all season and his strong display against Russia in Game 2 continues that streak. He’s been lightning quick and shows no signs of slowing down.
1. Marty Frk (5 Goals, 4 Assists) – Frk missed a stretch of games much like Drouin, but looks twice the player since returning. He’s been skating hard and take the smart shots, the new found work ethic is paying early dividends
