Toronto – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Mississauga IceDogs’ forward Jordan Owens is the OHL Player of the Week for the week ending November 5, 2006. Owens, a native of North York, Ontario scored four goals and added five assists for nine points, in three games last week.

Owens started his week with a bang on Thursday night, scoring two goals and five points as the IceDogs picked up an 8-2 road victory over the Peterborough Petes. On Saturday night Owens once again scored two goals, including a shorthanded marker as the IceDogs were victorious, this time 6-5 at home over the Guelph Storm. He was also named first star of the game on Saturday. Owens finished his week picking up two assists as the IceDogs perfect week was spoiled by a 6-4 defeat at the hands of the Toronto St. Michael’s Majors.

Owens is currently ranked in the top 15 in the OHL for both points and goals. A participant in last year’s OHL All-Star Classic, Owens has played an integral part in the resurgence of the IceDogs who currently have 23 points and are tied for the second most points in the OHL’s Eastern Conference.
