Utah's McIlveen named Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week
The 25-year-old forward scored three goals and added three assists for six points last week, helping the Grizzlies go 3-1-0 for the week.
McIlveen opened the week with an assist in a 3-2 loss against Ontario on Monday then scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in 3-2 overtime win over the Reign on Wednesday. After being held scoreless in a 4-1 win against Stockton on Friday, he ended the week with three points (2g-1a) in a 4-3 victory against the Thunder on Saturday.
A native of Waterloo, Ontario, McIlveen leads the Grizzlies with 28 goals and 60 points in 56 games this season. He is tied for third in the league with 11 power-play goals while his 241 shots rank third overall.
McIlveen has 178 points (72g-106a) in 233 career ECHL games with Utah, Cincinnati, Greenville, Elmira and South Carolina. He has also appeared in three career American Hockey League games with Norfolk and Binghamton.
