Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild (NHL) and Iowa Wild (AHL), are proud to announce that Spencer Asuchak, the team’s longest tenured player, has been named the Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week for the period April 26th through May 2nd.
Spencer Asuchak had seven points total last week in the Americans sweep of the four-game homestand. He had three power play goals and a shorthanded goal in the five scored last week.
“It was a great week for us,” noted Spencer Asuchak. “I think we are really starting to come together as a team. We have a great group of guys and I think winning four straight games this week, was just the start of what we can do. It is fun to be a part of!”
This is the second time in his career that he has been named the ECHL Player of the Week. He had a big month of April, scoring nine goals and adding two assists for 11 points during the month.
The Kamloops, BC native is in his eighth season with the Americans. He shares the captaincy this year along with teammate and good friend Dyson Stevenson.
