Chris Martenet had an excellent week with the Ottawa 67s, finishing with four points in three games for the hulking defenseman.

He had a pair of games with a goal and an assist to his name. Firstly during a 5-4OT loss to Peterborough on Thursday he scored on the powerplay and had an impressive assist when he managed to pass the puck from deep in his own zone to a breaking forward.

Colton Point’s season is over after Colgate lost their deciding game against Princeton last Sunday. He didn’t play in the 2-1 loss.



Niklas Hansson played only one game this week and was a scratch for the other game HV71 had on the schedule.

He played only eight minutes in the game he did play and finished pointless. It has been a disappointing season for Hansson having taken a step back from his performance last season.

HV71 finished second in the SHL so Hansson will have a chance to play in the postseason.

John Nyberg played two games for Frolunda and finished pointless through both of them. He averaged 19 minutes through both games.

It has been a good season for Nyberg as he has cemented himself as a reliable defenseman for Frolunda in his first full season with the club at the SHL level.

He finished with 15 points in 49 games and averaged 17 minutes of ice time per game over the entire regular season.

Frolunda finished third in the SHL so Nyberg will be seeing postseason action.

Fredrik Karlstom played four games in the Allsvenska playoffs for AIK and has a single goal through those games.

He scored his goal during a 3-2 win against IK Pantern on Wednesday.

AIK currently lead the table to go to a playoff series to win promotion to the SHL.


Roope Hintz had a hat trick in his second to last regular season game. He got it during a 6-0 drubbing of Assat on Saturday.

He was named first star of the game for his performance. Highlights of the game can be found here.

Aleksi Makela played two games for Assat this week and finished pointless through both games.
