Reign defenseman Andrew Martens has been named the Sher-wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week for March 15-21.
The 28-year-old had eight points (two goals, six assists) in four games to help Ontario go 2-1-1 for the week. Martens recorded the first four-point game of his career, and his second three-assist game of the season, Sunday in Ontario’s 6-5 shootout loss to Idaho. He had at least one point in all four games for the week and had a plus-minus rating of plus-4.
Martens has a five-game point streak that started when he recorded one assist during the Reign’s 4-3 win at Alaska on March 13. After a slow start to the season, he is third on the Reign with 29 assists and sixth in points with 33. His 17 power-play assists rank second among the team and he is currently tied for 13th among ECHL defensemen in points.
