Houck Named Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week


PRINCETON, N.J. – Jackson Houck of the Colorado Eagles is the Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week for Feb. 13-19.

Houck scored four goals and added one assist for five points as the Eagles swept a three-game series at Alaska last week to extend their club record winning streak to 12 games.

The 22-year-old picked up an assist in a 4-3 win on Friday, recorded his first professional hat trick in a 6-2 victory on Saturday and tallied the game-winning goal in a 4-1 win on Sunday.

On behalf of Jackson Houck, a case of pucks will be donated to a Colorado youth hockey organization by Sher-Wood Hockey, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Sher-Wood Hockey has donated more than 35,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.
