Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Ottawa Senators prospect Logan Brown of the Windsor Spitfires is the Pioneer Energy OHL Player of the Week for the week ending October 9 after recording two goals and six assists for eight points in three games with a plus-minus rating of plus-2.
Brown extended his season-long point-streak to six games with three multi-point performances last week helping the 2017 Mastercard Memorial Cup hosts earn a trio of victories. On Thursday night he scored a goal and an assist as third star of a 4-2 win over the Mississauga Steelheads, then repeated the offensive output Friday in a 5-4 road win over the Guelph Storm. Brown’s week wrapped up Sunday where he matched a career-high with four assists including the setup of Jalen Chatfield’s overtime winner to earn second star honours in a 5-4 triumph over the London Knights.
An 18-year-old from Chesterfield, Missouri, Brown is playing in his third career OHL season with the Spitfires who currently lead the Western Conference standings with a 6-2-0-0 record. The 11th overall pick of the Senators in the 2016 NHL Draft ranks fourth in league scoring with 14 points in six games including three goals and 11 assists after recording 21 goals and 53 assists for 74 points in 59 games played in the 2015-16 season.
