Jeremy Bracco of the Kitchener Rangers is the OHL Player of the Week, after leading the league with 13 points in four games.
Bracco scored four goals and added nine assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-2. He extended his season-long point-streak to six games with four multi-point performances last week, as the Midwest Division-leading Rangers earned three wins.
The highlight of his week was on Thanksgiving Monday where he recorded a career-high five points, including his first hat-trick, earning first star honours in an 8-4 win over the Guelph Storm.
A 19-year-old from Freeport, NY, Bracco is playing in his second OHL season with the Rangers and was a second-round pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2015 NHL Draft.
He is currently tied for third in OHL scoring with 17 points in six games.
