After a selection to the Central Hockey League’s all-star team, a Trail native was also named CHL player of the week.

Todd Robinson of the Evansville Icemen continued his fine play by adding 10 points in four games on two goals, eight assists and a plus-five rating to garner PoW honours last week.

In the process, Robinson pushed his personal point-scoring streak to 10 games and ranks second in the league in scoring with 10 goals and a league-high 39 assists.

The PoW honour marks the second time this season that Robinson has been proclaimed CHL Player of the Week.

Robinson added two assists in the all-star match Wednesday, a wide-open affair that saw the CHL Stars beat defending league champion Arizona Sundogs, 6-4, despite being outshot 75-51.

Another Trail native, Rich Kromm, has guided the Icemen to the biggest turn around of any team in the league. Evansville has 10 more wins and 18 more points than they did at this time last season and sit in second spot in the Turner Cup Conference.

Teammate Steve Makway of Trail has also contributed to this year’s success. The 28-year-old defenceman has added seven points in his last five games with a plus-seven rating. The Icemen are 6-0-1 in January.

NCAA hockey notes:

The Jones brothers are flying high in Quinnipiac as they led the Bobcats to a 7-1 win over number-12 ranked Colgate Saturday.

Connor Jones had four assists on the night while Kellen added a goal and two assists for a three-point game. Connor leads the team in scoring with five goals and 20 assists while Kellen is third with 6 goals and 12 assists.

With the win, Quinnipiac improves to 13-8-5 overall and 5-5-4 in ECAC Hockey play while Colgate drops to 12-8-2 overall and 6-4-0 in league action.

In attendance at the game was NHL Hall of Famer, “Mr. Hockey” Gordie Howe, as well as his son Marty.
