Since the beginning of November, we probably should have began naming this the Belleville Bulls Awards. Almost every week there's not one, but two Bulls teammates for consideration for the three stars. But there's a new kid on the block this week.
1st Star - Daniil Zharkov - Belleville Bulls : Zharkov led the Bulls to three straight victories offensively scoring six goals, two in each game in those victories, including the game winner in a 4-1 decision over Windsor. His 4 other goals came in back to back victories over Kingston, 4-2 and 8-1. Zharkov now has 11 goals in 11 games, and despite having only played those 11 games, now sits 7th in goals scored among first time draft eligible players.
2nd Star - Malcolm Subban - Belleville Bulls : Since returning from injury at the beginning of November, Subban has been dominant. He had a sparkling 1.33 GAA and .962 SV% in three games last week including a 36 save performance against Kingston, then 33 saves in the rematch and followed that up with another 33 sames over Windsor. Subban now leads the league in goals against average and save percentage. Since his return, he's been one of our three stars each week but once.
3rd Star - Scott Laughton - Oshawa Generals : Laughton recorded 1 goal and 5 assists in two games for Oshawa last week. The defensively responsible Laughton broke out with 3 assists in an 8-4 victory over Sarnia. He followed that up with a goal and 2 assists in a 9-1 thumping of Peterborough.
