Coquitlam Express forward Massimo Lamacchia has been named the British Columbia Hockey League's Player of the Week for the week ending October 10th, the league announced Monday.
Lamacchia enjoyed a pair of outstanding games over the weekend that helped extend Coquitlam's home record to 5-1 on the season. On Friday, the 19-year old assisted on four Express tallies in a 7-4 victory over the Surrey Eagles. And on Sunday afternoon, he netted a hat trick and added another three helpers in a 9-2 triumph over the Cowichan Valley Capitals.
Overall, Lamacchia recorded three goals and seven assists in three games. The offseason pick-up from Ontario now sits third in team scoring with 17 points through 12 games.
Honourable mentions for this week's award included Penticton Vees defenceman Joey Laleggia, Nanaimo Clippers forward Mike Domsodi and Powell River Kings forward Chad Niddery.
