Forward - Quinn Hutson (Muskegon Lumberjacks)

A five-point night and seven-point week propelled Hutson to his first career Forward of the Week award. The Boston University commit registered a pair of goals during a 5-0 Wednesday night win over the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (NTDP). Later that week, Hutson factored into every goal in a 5-4 win Saturday night. The Chicago, Ill. native assisted on a pair of first period goals before scoring twice in the second period to open up a 4-0 lead before picking up a primary assist on the eventual game-winning goal in the third period. This season, Hutson has recorded 21 points (11-10-21) in 18 games after nearly a point-per-game production last season that saw the second-year forward collect 42 points (16-26-42) in 45 games. The future Terrier’s five-point Saturday night was a career high, topping his previous best of three points in five different games. Hutson now has points in four of his last five games (5-6-11).

Defenseman - Trey Taylor (Youngstown Phantoms)

Taylor was instrumental in the Phantoms offense in their lone game of the week, an 8-4 loss Friday night. The Clarkson University commit picked up his second Defenseman of the Week award this season with a three-assist performance Friday night, matching his career-high of three points back in his previous Defenseman of the Week award from Week 2 of this season. Taylor currently has 13 points (2-11-13) this season through 18 games with the Phantoms. The Richmond, British Columbia native is the younger brother of Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Ty Taylor (2018, Round 7, #214) and is eligible for the NHL Draft this season.

Goaltender - Noah Grannan (Sioux Falls Stampede)

Grannan picked up his second Goaltender of the Week award of his career with a 25-save shutout of the Sioux City Musketeers in a 2-0 win on Saturday night. The University of Wisconsin commit bounced back with the shutout after a rough previous outing against the Musketeers and now holds a 2-2-0-0 record in five appearances this season with a 3.07 goals against average and 0.889 save percentage. Grannan, a Germantown, Wis., native, was ranked by NHL Central Scouting ahead of the last two NHL Drafts and will be Draft-eligible again this summer.
