Craig Smith USHL Offensive POTW

For the second time this season, Madison native and 2009 incoming forward recruit Craig Smith has been named the USHL Offensive Player of the Week.

From the article: Smith led the way as the surging Black Hawks extended their winning streak to seven games with three victories. On Tuesday, he scored a goal and had an assist in a 6-1 win at Sioux Falls. On Friday, he had another assist in a 6-0 win at Sioux City. Then on Saturday, he scored a hat trick in the second period and added an assist in a 7-4 win over Chicago. He had 11 shots on goal and was +6.

Smith was also named the USHL Offensive Player of the Week back on December, 22 when he had back to back 4 point games.

The kid has done nothing but impress the hell out of me this season. He currently sits second in the USHL in scoring with 68 points in 49 games. He's 7 points back of the leader but has played in 4 less games. He's going to look awfully good in cardinal and white next fall.
