Ranger Named Player of the Week

Dallas Stars prospect Riley Damiani of the Kitchener Rangers is the OHL Player of the Week with nine points in three games scoring four goals and five assists.

Damiani led the league in scoring last week while helping the Rangers earn four of a possible six points as they jostle for position in the Western Conference standings.

The highlight of his week was back-to-back four point performances in a home-and-home set with the Owen Sound Attack.  

He recorded two goals and two assists as first star of Wednesday's 7-4 road win, followed by a goal with a trio of assists to drive Rickard Hugg's hat-trick in Friday's 6-1 victory at home.  

An 18-year-old from Mississauga, Damiani is playing in his third season with the Rangers who chose him in the second round of the 2016 OHL Priority Selection.

The Rangers are seventh in the Western Conference Standings, three points up on the Spitfires.

Damiani was selected by the Stars in the fifth round of the 2018 NHL Draft.
