The Owen Sound Attack have named centreman Kevin Hancock the Huron Tractor Supply Player of the Week for the seventh week of the Ontario Hockey League season.
Hancock, an over-ager in his 5th season with the Bears, has gotten off to an incredible start this season. Week 7 marks the 3rd time already this year that Hancock has been awarded the Huron Tractor Supply Player of the Week.
Hancock, playing on a line between Aidan Dudas and Daylon Groulx, continued upping his point total this week. On Friday night in Oshawa, he lead the team to a 6-4 victory over the Generals. Hancock had 2 goals and 2 assists on the night.
Saturday, back home at the Bayshore, the Attack took on the powerhouse London Knights, and unfortunately came away with a shootout loss. Despite the loss, Hancock was named 1st star of the contest, with an assist and 2 shorthanded goals on the night. Hancock was a threat all night, managing 9 shots on goal, and won 61% of his face-offs.
Sunday the Attack headed down to Hamilton to take on the Bulldogs, but fell 5-2. Yet Hancock managed to tally 2 assists, one on the powerplay and one shorthanded.
All told, Hancock had 4 goals and 5 assists for 9 points in 3 games this week for the Bears. He now has points in 9 of his last 10 games, and currently sits 4th in league scoring, with a remarkable 30 points in 18 games.
