The Guelph Storm announced today that forward James McEwan is the Player of the Week for the week ending February 26, 2017, receiving the honours for the third time this season.
The Chatham, Ontario was an instrumental piece in Friday night’s win, scoring twice in the first period, before moving to defence in the second period. Following an injury on the Storm blue-line halfway through the second period, McEwan made the switch to defence and helped the stabilize the Storm’s back-end in the victory.
The Storm veteran followed up Friday night with the Storm’s lone goal in Sunday’s loss to the Knights, a game which saw the third-year forward take regular shifts on defence for the entirety of the game.
