CTHSHockey D1 Player of the Week

CTHSHockey's D1 Week One Player of the Week

Jimmy Morrissey, Jr. Forward (West Haven)
Morrissey has been a bright spot in a sub par year for the Blue Devils.  In a win and a loss this past week, Morrissey paced the Westies with four goals, two in each game.  Overshadowed at the beginning of the season by stud forward Austin Hansen, Morrissey is tied for the Westies scoring lead with 15 points (10 G, 5 A) through 11 games.  The junior is a key cog if West Haven wants to make the Division 1 state tourney.

West Haven's Morrissey is keeping the Blue Devils afloat this year.

Lou Iannotti, Jr. Defense (ND West Haven) Iannotti has emerged as one of the best two way defensemen in the state.  With forward-like precision on the wrist shot, Iannotti is an invaluable power play option.  In NDWH's 7-1 win over Hamden this week the D-man notched a hat trick and added a helper.

Alex Rowella, So. Forward (Ridgefield) The sophomore winger had another big week notching two goals and three assists in wins over South Windsor and Stamford.  Rowella now leads the Tigers in scoring with 20 points (5 G, 15 A) through 13 games.

Joe O'Connor, So. Defense (Hamden) The Hamden D-man was vital in Hamden's 5-2 win over Cheshire notching four assists.  One of the state's best defensemen, O'Connor is as good offensively as defensively.

Mark Laoue, Sr. Forward (St. Joseph) The senior notched four goals and an assist on the week including a hat trick.  Laoue is among a cast of characters who've lead St. Joseph early this season.

Avery Clair, Sr. Forward (Glastonbury) Clair single handedly dismantled Fermi-Enfield this week with four goals and two assists in the Tomahawks' 8-1 win.  The Tomahawks' leading scorer, Clair has filled in admirably for the graduations of Ethan Holdaway and Drew Mozzer.

Mike Falanga, So. Forward (East Haven) Falanga continued his stellar season with three goals and two assists this week for the Yellow Jackets.  The pint sized sophomore is leading East Haven in points with 28 (12 G, 16 A)  through 10 games.  If East Haven could get any production aside from the Falanga-Goodwin-Longobardi line, they'd be a lot more effective.

Stone Denbok, Jr. Goalie (ND Fairfield) A common place to find Denbok this season, he again makes the cut after stopping 48 of 51 shots this week in back to back NDF wins.  He's spearheaded the revival at the MIP and even added an assist for himself this week.
