CH Hope wins USHL Player of the Year award

Montreal Canadiens player Sean Farrell received the United States Hockey League (USHL) Player of the Year award on Monday.

The Chicago Steel striker lowered the ratings of his peers in the US junior circuit with 101 points in 53 games.

Thus, he became the second player in the history of this league to exceed the plateau of 100 points in one season.

In the fourth round (124th overall) in the 2020 auction, Farrell had, among other things, a streak of 24 matches with at least one point.

He added 10 points in the playoffs to help his team win the Clark Cup.

Next season, the 19-year-old will wear the Harvard NCAA uniform.

Medal for the son of Philip Boucher

At ECHL, Kipker Matthew Boucher was named Rookie of the Year.

Playing for the Liotta Grizzlies, the son of former National League defender Philip Boucher, he scored 25 goals and 27 assists for 52 points in 59 games.

Previously, the 23-year-old left winger spent two campaigns with the University of New Brunswick and also played four full seasons in the Major League Hockey League in Quebec.

Boucher wore mainly the colors of the Voltigeurs de Drummondville and Remparts de Québec during his stay at the Courteau.

A person who also holds US citizenship was not inducted into the NHL. He made a deal with the Grizzlies as a free agent last January.
