Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that 2023 NHL Draft prospect Ethan Miedema of the Kingston Frontenacs is the Cogeco OHL Player of the Week, recording six goals, two assists and eight points in three games along with a plus/minus rating of plus-6.

Recording two four-point nights last week, Miedema got things started with four goals in a 6-2 win over the Oshawa Generals on Wednesday. The four-goal effort was the first by a Frontenac since Warren Foegele last netted four in a game on Mar. 26, 2016. The 6-foot-4, 201 lb. forward closed out the weekend with a pair of goals and assists to earn first star honours as the Frontenacs defeated the Generals in a high-scoring 10-2 road win to wrap-up the season on Sunday.

An 18-year-old native of Cobourg, Ont., Miedema has produced nine goals, 12 assists and 21 points in 32 games since joining the Frontenacs in January. In total, Miedema recorded 20 goals, 32 assists and 52 points in 68 games between Windsor and Kingston in 2022-23. The former first round (4th overall) pick by the Spitfires in the 2021 OHL Priority Selection has registered 34 goals, 56 assists and 90 points in 133 career regular season games. Miedema competed in the Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in January, and was the 45th-ranked North American skater on NHL Central Scouting’s Midseason Rankings.

Also considered for the award this week, Anaheim Ducks prospect Sasha Pastujov of the Sarnia Sting produced two goals, seven assists and nine points in four games. Logan Morrison of the Ottawa 67’s contributed two goals and four assists for six points in a pair of victories.
