The Pizza 73 AJHL Player of the Week is AJHL scoring leader Ryan McAllister of the Brooks Bandits. With seven points (3G, 4A) in three games last week, McAllister surpassed the 100-point mark to break the team record for most points in a single season.
McAllister, 20, added an assist on the opening goal of the January 25th game versus the Camrose Kodiaks, but Brooks would end up on the wrong side of a 6-3 score. On January 28th, Brooks got back into the win column with a 10-5 victory over the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. McAllister scored his second hat trick of the season and recorded a season-high six points in the game. The Bandit forward was awarded with his eighth Viterra AJHL Star of the Game selection in the record setting night.
The Western Michigan University commit is the first Bandit to register 100 points in a season and has also set a team record for most assists in a single season passing the previous record of 68. The third-year Bandit now leads the AJHL in points (110) and assists (72).
The Bandits are home for two games this weekend, Friday (Feb 4) vs the Calgary Canucks and Saturday (Feb 5) vs the Okotoks Oilers. Both games are at 7:00 pm at the Centennial Regional Arena.
