  1. Well deserved, Giorgio! Some sweet mitts! Seems he has such an improved stride and acceleration this season. Loved that fake drop pass on recent OT winner (Can you believe that the current leading scorer in the WHL has not yet achieved this same accolade?

    Burke should be next.

  2. It's about time the Canes players start getting some recognition! Congrats to Giorgio!!

  3. He's now the CHL player of the week. Keep it going Guys!!!!
