Matthew Maggio, Windsor Spitfires, OHL (5th Round, 2022)

Matthew Maggio had one of the best weeks for any NY Islanders prospect last week as he filled up the stat sheet every which way.

With eight points (four goals, four assists) in three games, Maggio was tied for the most points in the OHL last week with the player of the week Ryan Gagnier of the Oshawa Generals.

Aside from his points, Maggio was also a +5 on the week and added 14 shots on goal. As he continues to light up the scoreboard, Maggio remains one of the leading scorers in the CHL, with his recent performances jumping him a few spots closer to the top. Catapulting into fourth place in league scoring, Maggio now has 39 points (18 goals, 21 assists) in 26 games for the Windsor Spitfires.

Windsor's first game of the week came as the Spitfires hosted the Ottawa 67's. Shorthanded with a two-goal advantage late in the first period, Maggio stripped the puck as a 67's forward tried to make a move at his blue line. Leaning to his right to gain leverage on the defenseman, Maggio created a better angle to beat the goalie up in the toy department, short side.

Maggio has lead the Spitfires on their current five-game win streak and a 17-7-3-1 overall record.

Daylan Kuefler, Kamloops Blazers, WHL (6th Round, 2022)

After posting goose eggs in the first two games of the week for the Kamloops Blazers, Daylan Kuefler made up for his lack of scoring in the week's third and final game.

Known as more of a goal scorer than distributor this season, Kuefler added four helpers to his season total in Kamloops' 6-1 victory over the Victoria Royals.

Kuefler currently sits third in team scoring for Kamloops with 28 points (12 goals, 16 assists).

Isaiah George, London Knights, OHL (4th Round, 2022)

Isaiah George was held pointless on the week as his London Knights team continues to roll. Adding four more points, the Knights now have 39 on the season at 19-8-1-0, with two games in hand.

George remains one of the most solid defensemen for London with two goals and five assists in 18 games after an injury-riddled start to the season.

Tristan Lennox, Saginaw Spirit, OHL (3rd Round, 2021)

Tristan Lennox and the Saginaw Spirit had one of their few non-dominant weeks last week as the team went 2-2 and Lennox, 1-2.

With only a .868 SV%, Lennox allowed 10 goals on 76 shots in his three appearances.

His best performance came in the Spirt's 4-2 win over the Sudbury Wolves. Allowing only two goals on 31 shots, Lennox was named the first star of the game. His best moment came late in the first period on a two-on-one as he flashed the leather making to save a would-be goal.
