CT Oilers Notebook: Pizzimenti named EHL Offensive Player of the Week

NORWALK -- In an announcement that hardly came as a surprise, the EHL on Monday named Connecticut Oilers' forward Joe Pizzimenti as its offensive player of the week for the period ending Sunday.

It's hard to imagine anyone else even being considered after the native of Washington, Mich., scored five goals in two games to help lead the Oilers to a sweep of the New York Bobcats.

Pizzimenti scored a hat trick in Saturday's 6-2 win, then added two more in Sunday's 4-3 victory at the SoNo Ice House.

He now has a team-high seven goals, which is tied for sixth in the league, after scoring just two in 34 games for the Oilers last season.

"Last year, it kind of hurt me because I broke my arm in the second game of the year, so coming back from that was a little bit difficult just as a first-year junior player and getting into the lineup," Pizzimenti said.

But Pizzimenti clearly seems more comfortable on the ice with a year of junior hockey experience under his belt and has become an offensive threat.

"Last year I had a little bit of a different role," he said. "(Now) I kind of know what the game's about and understand the flow a little bit better, so I think my role has switched a little bit this year."

In just 12 games, Pizzimenti already has tripled his goal output from last season.
