Peter Boyd Named ECHL Player of the Week

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The ECHL announced today that LW Peter Boyd has been named Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week for March 12-18.

The Condors’ captain helped lead the team to a 3-1-0 record on the week by amassing eight points (2g-6a) in the four games played.

After earning an assist in the team’s 3-2 loss to Utah on Wednesday, the left-winger went on to record multi-point games in the next three Condors victories. In Friday’s 5-2 win over the Grizzlies, he tallied a career-high three assists. In Saturday’s 4-3 home victory against Las Vegas he scored twice, before capping off the weekend with two assists in the team’s 4-3 win in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The Cambridge-Narrows, NB native ranks third on the Condors in scoring with 36 points (16g-20a) through 55 games played.

The 24-year old rookie played his collegiate hockey at Ohio State where he recorded 113 points (39g-74a) in 159 career games played prior to turning pro and appearing in 11 games with the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League (AHL) with one assist.

Boyd becomes the third Condor this season to earn ECHL Player of the Week honors joining RW Tyler Helfrich (Dec. 26 – Jan. 1), and LW Evan Trupp (Feb. 6-12).
