Jacks' Hunter gets AHL honor

December 22, 1992|By Sandra McKee

Skipjacks right wing Mark Hunter, a 12-year NHL veteran, was named American Hockey League Player of the Week yesterday.

Hunter scored the game-winning goal against the Hershey Bears on Wednesday, and followed with back-to-back hat tricks against the Binghamton Rangers on Friday and Rochester Americans on Sunday.

For the week, Hunter had seven goals and two assists and the Skipjacks went 2-0-1, keeping their unbeaten string alive at six games.

In 11 games with the Skipjacks since being sent to Baltimore from the Washington Capitals, Hunter has nine goals (two game-winners) and six assists.

By winning the award, he will be given $500 worth of sticks and a case of pucks (100) that will be donated to the youth hockey program of his choice.

Meanwhile, the Skipjacks' next game is Sunday against the Utica Devils at the Baltimore Arena. They will play without defenseman Brad Schlegel (ankle) and RW Jeff Greenlaw (rib muscle pull), who are out indefinitely.
