Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Philippe Maillet of the Victoriaville Tigres is the CHL Player of the Week for the week ending November 11 after recording eight points in two games with three goals and five assists and a plus-minus rating of plus-5.
Maillet helped the Tigres pick up a pair of victories last week powered by a five-point performance Friday night as first star in a 7-1 win over the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. With three goals and two assists the contest marks Maillet’s best game of the season, but counts as his fourth career five-point game. On Saturday the Tigres defeated the QMJHL’s top team the Halifax Mooseheads 5-4 with Maillet recording three assists as third star of the game.
Maillet, a 20-year-old from Terrebonne, Quebec, is playing in his fourth QMJHL season with the Tigres. Currently ranked 18th in league scoring, Maillet has 10 goals and 17 assists for 27 points in 17 games.
Also considered for the award this week was Connor Brown of the Erie Otters who scored two goals and five assists for seven points in two games, and Mark McNeill of the Prince Albert Raiders who picked up seven points in three games also scoring two goals and five assists.
