My 3 Stars for the week ending January 9/11

1st star - Shane Prince, Ottawa 67's. Prince seems to be a regular fixture here nowadays. And why not? All he does is continue to rack up points for the 67's. Last week he scored once and added 8 assists and was a plus 5 in 3 games. He now has 21 goals and 53 assists in 41 games on the season, only 1 point behind team mate Tyler Toffoli for the league lead.

2nd star - Nicklas Jensen - Oshawa Generals. Jensen has been coming on strong lately and beginning to garner attention. He's found his confidence and is feeling comfortable playing in North America and that doesn't bode well for opposition goaltenders. In 3 games last week Jensen scored 5 goals and added an assist and was a plus 4 on the week. He now has 18 goals and 14 assists in 31 games on the season in which it is a virtual tie for 3rd in team scoring with fellow draft eligibles Boone Jenner and Lucas Lessio.

3rd star - Brett Ritchie - Sarnia Sting. Ritchie too was off to a slow start this season and with the 2 "Super Russian" rookies taking the OHL by storm for the Sting, his offense wasn't counted on as much. But in 3 games last week, Ritchie scored 4 goals and added 2 assists and was a plus 2 while being solid in all 3 zones for the Sting. He now has 17 goals and 10 assists in 37 games. He's already surpassed last seasons goals and is only 6 shy in assists and 2 shy in points. He's gone from a minus 33 last season to a minus 5 this season.
