NA3HL tabs Andrews 3rd Star of the Week
The three stars of the week is an award given each week of the regular season to the top performing players in the NA3HL as nominated by their head coaches.
3rd Star: Doug Andrews, forward, Metro Jets
It was a week, or game, to remember for Metro forward Doug Andrews, 20, who helped the Jets win two of their three games this past week to keep their playoff chances alive.
The native of Macomb, Mich., who is closing in on 100 points for the NA3HL career, had a career game in Metro’s 9-2 win in Quad City on Sunday. Andrews set an NA3HL season-high with five goals and eight points in a single game. He also was plus-5. The five goals also included the game-winning goal, which came at the end of the first period.
Of the nine goals scored in the game, Andrews recorded a point in eight of them.
“Doug had been in a little funk, but the most important thing was he has never stopped working hard,” said Jets' head coach Jason Cirone. “He finally put it all together and everything he touched seem to go in or produce offense.”
1st Star was Flint goalie Andres Franke and 2nd Star was Flint forward Nick Gnagni.
