BOUCHERVILLE, Monday, December 14, 2009 – Quebec Remparts forward Jonathan Audy-Marchessault and Moncton Wildcats goaltender Shane Owen today were named the TELUS offensive and defensive players of the week for the period extending from December 7 to 13.
Audy-Marchessault registered three goals and six assists while posting a +5 rating in three games. Moreover, he tallied two game-winners. On Sunday, the sniper tied his career-high by recording five points in a 7-4 win over the Drakkar in Baie-Comeau. It was the second five-point game of his career. Remarkably, the first time Audy-Marchessault accomplished the feat was against the Drakkar on December 30, 2008. The Remparts are at the top of the TELUS Eastern Division standings.
Shane Owen is the award-winner on defence. The backstop won all three of his starts, stopping 84 of 89 shots. He closed out the week with a 1.67 goals-against-average and .944 save percentage. Furthermore, he helped the Wildcats put a stop to Saint John’s incredible 22-game winning streak yesterday by pushing away 27 shots in a 7-3 win. Moncton is in a three-way tie for second place in the Atlantic Division standings.
Jake Allen (Junior), Adam Janosik (Olympiques) and Marc-Antoine Desnoyers (Voltigeurs) were also considered.
