Josh Currie, Christophe Lalonde and Chistopher Gibson were named today the TELUS three stars of the week for the period extending rom December 10 to 16.
The leading QMJHL scorer and PEI Rocket centreman Josh Currie is awarded the first star of the week after collecting 9 points, including 6 assists, and a +/- of +10. Thursday, in a 3-1 loss versus the Halifax Mooseheads, he was the only Rocket to score during the penalty kill. He was named the 3rd star of the game despite his team’s loss. Friday, in a 5-2 win against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, he registered 2 assists and a +/- of +4. Sunday, it was an evening of celebration at the Charlottetown Civic Centre with a 6-3 win against the Saint John Sea Dogs. Currie had a terrific performance of 2 goals and 4 assists for a total of 6 points. He scored another shorthanded goal that allowed him to tie the team record of 7 in one season (Michaël Lambert | 2003-04) on top of being named the 2nd star of the game. It’s worth noting that his teammate, Ben Duffy, scored his 122nd goal to become the franchise leader in goals, surpassing David Laliberté’s record (2002-2007).
