Lasch is POW

Ryan Lasch of the Fort Wayne Komets is the Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week for Dec. 10-16.  

Lasch scored four goals, added five assists and was a +6 last week as the Komets posted a 2-1-1 record. 

The 24-year-old opened the week with three assists and a +3 rating in a 7-3 win against Kalamazoo on Wednesday. He followed that up with a three-goal performance in a 6-4 loss at Reading on Friday, and tallied two points (1g-1a) in a 3-2 overtime loss at Wheeling on Saturday. He ended the week with an assist in a 2-1 victory over Kalamazoo on Sunday. 

A native of Lake Forest, Calif., Lasch has 14 points (5g-9a) in nine games with Fort Wayne this season, and enters this week on a seven-game point streak. Under contract to the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League, Lasch also has four points (1g-3a) in 11 games with Norfolk of the American Hockey League this season. 

Lasch spent the previous two seasons in Europe, totaling 92 points (36g-56a) in 114 games with Sodertalje SK (Sweden) and Pelicans (Finland).  

On behalf of Ryan Lasch, a case of pucks will be donated to a Fort Wayne youth hockey organization by Sher-Wood Hockey, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Sher-Wood Hockey has donated more than 27,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.

POW? Does that mean Player of the Week or Prisoner of War? I'm guessing the latter, since he didn't play the system, yet he hasn't been released or sent back to Norfolk :)

Blake,  Although the ECHL did not metion it, lets give Smitty an honorable mention. He deserves it. Thats a very strong line right now.  Ryan's achievement has a lot to do with Smitty's hard work also.

Seriously?  So....if a Norfolk guy wins an award, it has to come with an asterisk that contains a "core" guys name?
