Andrew Nielsen Named ECHL Player of the Week

SHREWSBURY, N.J. – Andrew Nielsen of the Utah Grizzlies is the Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week for Oct. 31-Nov. 6.

Nielsen scored one goal and added seven assists for eight points in three games at Kansas City last week.

After being held off the scoresheet in a 3-2 loss on Tuesday, Nielsen had a goal and an assist in a 4-3 win on Friday before notching six assists in a 7-3 win on Saturday. The six assists are tied for the second-most in a single game in ECHL history.

The 25-year-old leads ECHL defensemen with 10 assists and 11 points in seven games this season.

A native of Red Deer, Alberta, Nielsen has recorded 38 points (9g-29a) in 43 career ECHL games with Utah while adding 85 points (21g-64a) in 248 career American Hockey League games with Tucson, Hershey, Stockton and Toronto.

Prior to turning pro, Nielsen posted 94 points (25g-69a) in 131 career games with Lethbridge of the Western Hockey League.

On behalf of Andrew Nielsen, a case of pucks will be donated to a Utah youth hockey organization by Inglasco, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Inglasco has donated more than 47,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.

The Grizzlies next homestand is on November 17-18 at 7:10 pm and November 20 at 3:10 pm vs Idaho. Utah hosts the Trois-Rivieres Lions on November 25-27. Tickets for every Grizzlies home game are available at utahgrizzlies.com or by calling (801) 988-8000.
