67's' Marco Rossi named CHL Player of the Week

April 23, 2019 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) News Release

Toronto, ON - The Canadian Hockey League today announced that forward Marco Rossi of the Ottawa 67's is the CHL Player of the Week for the fifth week of playoff action ending April 21 with eight points in three games including four goals and four assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-2.

The Ottawa rookie began his week with a four-point outing, counting two goals and two assists, in a 6-4 series-opening win over the Oshawa Generals in the OHL Eastern Conference Final that earned him first-star recognition. He then added another two points in a 7-3 victory in Game 2, then picked up another goal and assist, in addition to second-star honours, as the 67's came away with a 5-1 decision in Game 3 to push the Generals to the brink of elimination. Ottawa is now just one win away from capturing the Bobby Orr Trophy, presented to the OHL Eastern Conference champion.

Through 11 playoff appearances, Rossi has collected five goals and 10 assists for 15 points, continuing his impressive regular-season clip when he tallied 65 points in 53 games to finish second in scoring among all rookies. The 17-year-old native of Feldkirch, Austria is eligible for the 2020 NHL Draft.

Also considered for the award this week was Vancouver Giants forward Dawson Holt, who tallied two goals and two assists for four points in two games to help his squad to a 2-0 series edge versus the Spokane Chiefs in the third round of WHL playoff action, as well as Rouyn-Noranda Huskies draft-eligible defenceman Justin Bergeron, who notched five assists over two games as his team claimed an early 2-0 series lead over the Rimouski Oceanic in the third round of the QMJHL playoffs.
