The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Florida Panthers prospect Jonathan Ang of the Peterborough Petes is the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week for the week ending October 1 scoring three goals and four assists for seven points in three games with a plus-minus rating of plus-1.
Ang’s seven points led the league during the second week of 2017-18 regular season play and featured a pair of three-point performances that helped the Petes earn a pair of victories. On Thursday night he scored a goal and two assists and was named second star of a 5-2 win over East Division rivals the Oshawa Generals. On Saturday Ang scored the lone goal for the Petes in a 5-1 road loss at Niagara, but rebounded on Sunday in the second of a home-and-home set beginning October with another goal and two assists as second star of an 8-4 win against the IceDogs.
Patience, poise, precision.
