GLENDALE, AZ (KFAQ) - The Central Hockey League has announced Tulsa Oilers forward Adam Pleskach has been named the Oakley CHL Player of the Week for the period ending November 10, 2013.
Pleskach, who just signed with Tulsa on November 1, scored four goals and chipped in three assists in three Oilers victories last week. A rookie left winger, Pleskach entered the week with five points in his first three games as an Oiler and continued his production with a goal and two assists in Wednesday’s 4-0 triumph over Wichita. Friday, in Tulsa’s first ever meeting with St. Charles, Pleskach scored in the second period and provided the game-winning goal late in the third period to push the Oilers to a 6-4 win. The Beausejour, Manitoba native pushed his point streak to six games when he found the net again on Saturday in Tulsa’s 3-2 shootout victory over the Chill. This week, Pleskach and his linemates, Kyle Bochek and Brandon Coccimiglio, combined for 16 points (6 goals, 10 assists) and a collective +17 rating.
In six games with Tulsa, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Pleskach has recorded six goals and six assists. He leads the Oilers in points (12), game-winning goals (2), and has posted an impressive +8 rating.
Pleskach, who spent four years at American International College, appeared in ten games last season for the Evansville Icemen (ECHL). In 16 professional appearances, Pleskach has put up 20 points. The 25-year old ranks second among all CHL rookies with 12 points and is tied for the rookie lead with a +8 rating.
In recognition of his outstanding achievement this week, Pleskach will receive a special gift from Oakley.
