The North American Hockey League (NAHL) today announced the Divisional Stars of the Week presented by Easton Hockey for the week ending January 11, 2015. The Easton Hockey Divisional Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2014-15 regular season that honors the top performing players in each of the four NAHL divisions. Only players that are nominated by their respective teams are considered for the Divisional Players of the Week award.
South Division Star of the Week: Oskar Andren, forward, Lone Star Brahmas
As if one of the league’s most potent offenses wasn’t good enough, it appears that the Brahmas have found yet another weapon in forward Oskar Andren. The 19-year-old forward from Stockholm, Sweden, had his best weekend of the year as the Brahmas took three of four points in their home series against Wenatchee to keep their hold on 2nd place in the South. Andren (6’1/180) recorded five points (all goals) in the two games, including one game-winner, and was also a +4 during the weekend. On Friday, Andren scored an NAHL season-high four goals in one game, including the game-winner, in a 6-5 win.
On Saturday, he scored one of the two Brahmas goals on the night in a 3-2 overtime loss. In 26 games played this year, Andren has 26 points, including 11 goals and 15 assists. “Oskars is a guy that is getting better every week. He is still learning the North American game, but he has unlimited potential for him to develop his skill and succeed. We are very happy with his progress and development thus far,” said Brahmas head coach Dan Wildfong.
