The Guelph Storm announced today that forward Isaac Ratcliffe is the player of the week for the week ending February 5, 2017, receiving the honours for the third time this season.
The London, Ontario kickstarted the Storm’s three-goal comeback in their lone matchup last week versus the Flint Firebirds. Down 3-0, the sophomore winger scored a power play marker halfway through the second.
Ratcliffe then made a nifty play behind the net to set up Albert Michnac to pull the Storm within one, his efforts earned him the second star of the game in the 4-3 overtime loss. The six-foot-six, 195-pound forward also played in the 2017 Sherwin-Williams Top Prospects game for Team Cherry, where he opened the scoring en route to a 7-5 victory. In total, Ratcliffe leads the team with 23 goals and 19 assists for 42 points in 48 games.
After a quiet one-game week, the Storm have a busy week ahead of them as they start their four-game road trip, with a Thursday night matchup against the North Bay Battalion. The Storm will then travel to Sault Ste. Marie to face the greyhounds on Friday night and then close the week with a Sunday afternoon contest against the Flint Firebirds.
