Prospect three stars of the week
First Star – Anders Nilsson
Nilsson picked up right where Kevin Poulin left off. The Swedish goalie has won his last four games allowing seven goals over that span. Last week, the Sound Tigers only played one game, Saturday against the Adirondack Phantoms, and Nilsson made 37 saves in a 2-1 win. Nilsson has the highest save percentage of all rookie goaltenders in the AHL (.913) and a record of 9-6-1 this season.

Second Star – Tomas Marcinko
Marcinko scored the game-winning goal Saturday against the Adirondack Phantoms, powering the Sound Tigers to a 2-1 win. Thanks to Marcinko’s tally, Bridgeport continues to surge and they have won eight straight games. The Slovakian winger has points in his last two games (1g/1a), and both were in big spots, as he assisted on Trevor Frischmon’s game-winner Jan. 14, against Providence. Marcinko has five goals and seven assists this season.

Third Star – Brenden Kichton
Kichton continues to lead WHL defensemen in scoring with nine goals and 38 assists (47 points) in 44 games. Last week, Kichton scored the game-winner Friday against Tri-City in a 3-1 win. He followed it up with a dominant performance Saturday, scoring a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over Portland. Kichton was held without a point in the Sunday rematch, but Spokane won 6-1. The Chiefs went 3-1 in four games last week.
