Bryan Kazarian named OHL player of the week

By pbadmin

The Ontario Hockey League saeson is a week old, and the season’s first player of the week has been named. Owen Sound Platers Centre Bryan Kazarian had a goal and eight assists in three games. Included was a game that the Platers lost 6-5 to the Soo Greyhounds. Kazarian assisted on all 5 goals, which tied a team record shared with Wayne Primeau, Kirk Muller and Keith Whitmore.

Kazarian’s 9 points leads the early OHL scoring race. The 18-year-old Owen Sound native is in his second season with the Platers.

In other news, Peter Reynolds got his wish. The disgruntled defenceman was dealt by the London Knights, along with a fourth round draft choice, to the North Bay Centennials in exchange for Overage centre Brett Gibson and Defenceman Brett Angel. Reynolds, a 1999 second round draft choice of the Toronto Maple Leafs, requested a trade during the summer, and had stayed away from the Knights. Angel was selected by the Nashville Predators in the third round last June.
