Press Release

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that New York Rangers prospect Anthony Duclair of the Quebec Remparts is the CHL Player of the Week for the second straight week recording 10 points in two games including three goals and seven assists for the week ending February 2.

Duclair exploded for a career-high seven points on Thursday night against the Halifax Mooseheads leading the Remparts to their seventh straight victory.  He scored twice as part of the club’s six-goal second period and added five assists in the 8-2 win and was named the game’s first star with the best individual performance by a QMJHL player this season.  The next night Duclair picked up a goal and two assists and received third star honours but the Remparts’ winning-streak came to an end falling 6-4 on Friday to the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada.  The Remparts continue to hold fourth place in the QMJHL standings with 68 points.

Duclair, an 18-year-old from Montreal, QC, is playing in his third QMJHL season with the Remparts.  Selected by the Rangers in the third round of the 2013 NHL Draft, Duclair is currently second in QMJHL scoring with 85 points including a league-high 45 goals along with 40 assists in 49 games played.

Also considered for the award this week was past winner and New Jersey Devils prospect Myles Bell of the Kelowna Rockets who scored six goals and three assists for nine points in three games, while two-time OHL Player of the Week and Phoenix Coyotes prospect Max Domi of the London Knights scored twice with four assists for six points in three games.
