The Peterborough Petes are excited to be recognizing deserving local minor hockey players with ‘Player of the Week’ awards.
Each week the Petes will recognize one of their own players, along with players from the PMHC, PHA, PGHA, and local adaptive hockey organizations. Selected recipients will receive tickets to an upcoming Petes game, social media recognition, a certificate of recognition, and other prizes.
Peterborough Petes Player of the Week: Zach Gallant
In Gallant’s last three games, the captain registered two goals in a 7-3 loss against Windsor on Thursday, February 13 and scored the game winning goal as the Petes skated to a 5-3 victory in Owen Sound on Saturday, February 15. The San Jose Sharks prospect continued to contribute offensively as he scored twice and assisted on Nick Robertson’s game winning goal in a 5-2 win on Family Day against the Sudbury Wolves. Gallant is currently having his career-best season as the centre has racked up 29 goals and 54 points.
Minor Hockey Player of the Week: Declan Ready (PMHC)
Ready is described as a true leader in the dressing room on the Minor Peewee AAA Petes by constantly communicating with his teammates and his never-ending work ethic goes unnoticed. He helped his team achieve their goal of making the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) playoffs for the fourth year in a row and the team seeks a deep run in the playoffs as they take on the Whitby Wildcats in round two.
Minor Hockey Player of the Week: Mathew Colling (PHA)
As the lone goaltender for the Minor Atom AA team, Colling has been pronominal for the entire season. This past weekend, he backstopped his team to clinching a 4-1 series win over North Durham and his confidence carried into the semi-finals as he shut out Belleville 3-0 in game one.
