PRINCETON, N.J. – Alaska Aces right wing Wes Goldie is the Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week for March 7-13. It is the second time this season, and the third time in his ECHL career, that Goldie has won the weekly honor.

           

The 31 year old scored five goals, added four assists and was a +4 as Alaska swept a three-game series from Mountain Division rival Victoria to stretch its lead over Idaho to nine points for first place in the division.

           

Goldie scored two goals, added an assist and was +3 in a 5-3 win on Wednesday and added four points (2g-2a) in a 6-1 victory on Friday. He ended the week with a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win on Saturday.

           

A native of London, Ontario, Goldie is tied for the league lead with 37 goals and 15 power-play goals, is fifth with 26 power-play points and is seventh with 67 points.

           

Goldie has 528 points (326g-202a) in 616 career ECHL games with Pee Dee, Victoria and Alaska. His goal on Saturday moved him into second place on the ECHL all-time goals-scored list behind only Rod Taylor. He ranks fifth in ECHL history in games played and is 18th in points.

           

On behalf of Wes Goldie a case of pucks will be donated to an Alaska youth hockey organization by Sher-Wood Hockey, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Sher-Wood Hockey has donated more than 23,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.
