Palmieri named AHL Player of the Week.

Prospect Kyle Palmieri was rewarded Monday for his big week with AHL affiliate Syracuse.

The 19-year-old right wing, who had five goals and an assist in three games, is the league’s Player of the Week. Palmieri notched his first career hat trick in a 5-4 loss to the Hamilton Bulldogs on Wednesday, had the game-tying goal in a 4-3 loss to the Hershey Bears Friday, and the go-ahead goal and an assist in 3-2 win over the Albany River Rats on Saturday.

The 26th overall pick in the 2009 draft, Palmieri now co-leads the AHL with seven goals. His nine points are tied for second among AHL rookies. He was tied for the team scoring lead with Nick Bonino, who was recalled Monday by the Ducks.
