Saverio Posa Named Windsor Spitfires Player of the Week

April 26, 2011 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Windsor Spitfires

The Windsor Spitfires most improved player this season, rearguard Saverio Posa just keeps getting better and better...

His four assists and +4 rating in Windsor's three games against Owen Sound in the West Finals this week earned him the Tecumseh and South Walkerville Vision Centres Windsor Spitfires Player of the Week honours for the period ending Sunday, April 24th.

After a difficult game one for the whole Spitfire squad, Posa played solid defence on the back end and assisted on the Spitfires' game-winning goal while posting a +2 rating in a 4-2 victory for Windsor in game two at the WFCU Centre. This evened the series at 1-1.

Two nights later, he recorded three assists and his defensive work was again highlighted with an impressive +3 rating in Windsor's 6-4 game three loss to the Attack in Owen Sound.

Posa has played steady two-way hockey during the 2011 OHL playoffs, registering seven assists in 17 games and a +8 rating.

The entire staff at Tecumseh and South Walkerville Vision Centres congratulates Saverio for his outstanding performances this week. He will receive a $50 gift certificate courtesy of Tecumseh and South Walkerville Vision Centres, honouring his efforts.

Game five of the Rogers Western Conference Final series will be played Wednesday night (April 27th) as the Spitfires travel to Owen Sound, ready to take on the Attack. Game time is set for 7 pm at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

Owen Sound currently leads the series three games to one and Windsor must win to extend the series. Fans can catch the game live on TVCOGECO or listen to the action with Mike Miller, the Voice of the Spits on AM800.
