RILEY McCOURT NAMED ECHL PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland Growlers, ECHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, is proud to announce that defenseman Riley McCourt has been named the Inglasco Player of the Week for the week ending March 13.  

McCourt, a St. Catherine’s, Ontario native, led all ECHL skaters this past week with nine points, including four goals and five assists with a +10 rating in four games played against the Trois-Riviėres Lions.   

Called upon to make the jump to playing forward this week, the rookie skater under contract to the AHL’s Toronto Marlies didn’t miss a beat and recorded his first professional hat trick including the game-winning goal on March 11 in a 6-1 victory over the Lions.  

Through 40 games played this season, the left-handed 21-year-old has recorded nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points and a +11 rating.  

McCourt joins Zach O’Brien and Orrin Centazzo who have won the league’s weekly honour earlier this season. 

On behalf of McCourt, a case of pucks will be donated to a Newfoundland youth hockey organization by Inglasco, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Inglasco has donated more than 45,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities. 

The Growlers kick off a seven-game road trip this week, kicking it off with their final game of the season against their Canadian rivals, the Trois-Riviėres Lions on March 17.
