Blog: Three Stars of the Week – April 22-28, 2013
1st Star: C Alex Broadhurst, London (OHL)
The Line: 3GP, 4G, 3A, +2 plus/minus
Broadhurst recorded points in all three of London’s playoff contests last week, including two consecutive three-point outings (4G, 2A) on April 24 and April 26. The 2011 seventh-round draft selection picked up the primary assist on the game-winning goal in Game 3 on April 23, tallied a pair—including the game-winner—the next night in Game 4, and added two more goals in Game 5, helping the Knights wrap up the Western Conference Championship with a 4-1 series win over the Plymouth Whalers. Broadhurst ranks second on the team with 21 points (9G, 12A) in 14 playoff games so far. London will face either the Belleville Bulls or the Barrie Colts, who will play Game 7 to decide the Eastern Conference title tonight.
