Matt Philip has been named the Huron Tractor Attacker of the Week for Week 7 of the OHL Season.
The Ilderton native scored three goals in three games while recording a +3 rating. Assistant Coach Jordan Hill says “We really liked his play on both sides of the puck. Defensively, special teams, he scored two shorthanded goals. He’s contributing offensively while his work ethic never wavers. If you can name it, he can do it for us.”
The overage forward was acquired in the offseason from the Niagara IceDogs in exchange for Jackson Doherty and a 6th round selection. So far this year, Philip leads the team with 8 goals in 15 games to go alongside three assists and a +7 rating.
Philip and the Attack are in action this weekend for two games at home. They will meet the Knights on Saturday night for Military Appreciation & Woolley’s Warriors night, with puck drop scheduled for 7:30 p.m. They will then meet the Erie Otters on Sunday afternoon with a skate with the team event happening after the game. Kids are advised to bring their skates and helmets if they want to participate. Puck drop for the Sunday matinee is at 2 p.m. Tickets for both games are available online and at the MacVicar & McComb Sutton-Sound Realty Box Office.
