American Hockey League

 

Devin Shore was named the AHL Player of the Week after he posted five goals and one assist in three matches. He netted a hat trick in a 5-2 win against Rockford last Saturday. The AHL rookie has six goals and seven points in four games this season with the Texas Stars. Shore was a second-round pick (61st overall) in the 2012 draft. Charles Hudon, who was taken in the same draft and is playing in his second year in the minors, chipped in four helpers in two wins for Montreal's affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps, over Rochester. He has one goal and five points in four games this campaign. Andrew Agozzino, who signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Avalanche in the summer, has generated seven points in just three games for San Antonio. He accounted for three goals and one assist in two outings last week in a pair of wins against Grand Rapids. Kerby Rychel registered two goals and one assist in a 4-1 win versus Iowa on Friday and was held scoreless in a 1-0 loss in Saturday's rematch. Rychel, who has four points in two games for Lake Erie this year, was chosen with the 19th overall pick in the 2013 draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

 

National Collegiate Athletic Association

 

Jake Guentzel amassed five assists in two wins against Vermont last week. The University of Nebraska-Omaha junior has six points in four games this year. He was a third-round pick (77th overall) of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2013. Guentzel's teammate and Chicago draft selection, Frederik Olofsson, produced two goals and two assists in those matches and all four of his points came in one game. The fourth-round choice of the Blackhawks in 2014 has five points in four outings during his freshman year. Winnipeg Jets prospect Jack Roslovic notched two goals and added one assist in a pair of victories over Ohio State. He has recorded five points in four contests in his first campaign with Miami University (Ohio) after being taken with the 25th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Miles Wood contributed two assists in a 6-0 win over Wisconsin last Friday. Wood was taken in the fourth round (100th overall) by the New Jersey Devils in the 2013 draft and he has five points in three appearances with Boston College this season.

 

Europe

 

Buffalo seventh-round pick Victor Olofsson found the back of the net for MODO Hockey in two games last week. He has produced eight points in 10 matches this year. The Sabres chose him 181st overall pick in 2014. Chicago Blackhawks prospect Gustav Forsling also has eight points in 10 games in the SHL this season. He contributed one assist in two matches last week. Forsling was originally selected in the fifth round of the 2014 draft by Vancouver, but he was shipped to Chicago in exchange for Adam Clendening, who was later traded to Pittsburgh in the Brandon Sutter deal. Karpat's Sebastian Aho picked up one goal and three assists in four Liiga games last week. He scored three of those points in a 4-3 win over the Pelicans. Aho was selected in the second round (35th overall) by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2015.
