SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS – The American Hockey League announced today Hamilton Bulldogs forward Sven Andrighetto has been selected as the CCM / AHL Player of the Week for the period ending February 9th, 2014.
Andrighetto recorded eight points (three goals, five assists) in four road games for the Bulldogs last week.
On Tuesday in Rockford, Illinois, the 5’9”, 182-pound forward scored a goal and assisted on three others, setting a career high with four points in a 6-4 loss to the IceHogs. He was held scoreless Wednesday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin against the Admirals, but came back with two assists on Saturday night, helping the Bulldogs to a come-from-behind 5-4 win over the Binghamton Senators in Ottawa, Ontario. Finally, the Zurich, Switzerland native scored two goals, including the game-winner in the third period, as the Bulldogs edged the Toronto Marlies 4-3 on Sunday afternoon in Toronto, Ontario.
Selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the third round (86th overall) in the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft, Andrighetto has 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) and 22 penalty minutes in 36 games with Hamilton this season.
