Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League announced that Shane Prince of the Ottawa 67’s is the OHL Player of the Week after recording seven assists in two games with a plus-minus rating of plus-2 for the week ending October 30.


Prince set-up seven of the nine goals scored by the 67’s in a pair of victories over the Peterborough Petes and the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors.  On Thursday night he recorded a career-high four assists as part of a 6-5 overtime win over the Petes, and on Friday he contributed three assists in a 4-3 shootout win over the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors.  The 67’s have now won four straight games and are ranked second in the OHL’s Eastern Conference with 21 points.


Prince, an 18-year-old from Spencerport, New York, is playing in his fourth OHL season.  The second round pick of the Ottawa Senators in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft has 14 points in eight games so far this season after scoring 88 points in 59 games with the 67’s last season.


Also considered for the award this week was Mark Scheifele of the Barrie Colts and Gemel Smith of the Owen Sound Attack.  Scheifele scored two goals and six assists for eight points in three games, while Smith scored three goals and four assists for seven points in three games.  In goal, Brandon Maxwell of the Sarnia Sting posted a 2-0-0-1 record with a goals-against-average of 1.62 and save percentage of .949.
