Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Week: 1/15-1/21

Chad gave it away...

RW/C Chris Lawrence, Mississauga (OHL)

Lawrence may have received the shaft recently when he was left off the OHL's Eastern Conference All-Star Team, but Bolt Prospects has nothing but love for the 2005 3rd round pick. This week is Lawrence's third week winning the award and his torrid scoring pace since returning from an early season injury has allowed him to overcome games missed and finally emerge in the top-20 in the OHL in scoring. With 32 goals and 59 points in 41 games Lawrence is tied for 19th in the league in scoring and his 32 goals are 5th in the OHL. This past week Lawrence had a gaudy 7 goals and 9 points in 3 games, starting with a 2 goal and 1 assist first star performance in Mississauga's 5-1 win at Toronto on Thursday the 18th. Lawrence elevated his game even higher the next night against Barrie scoring a 3rd period natural hat trick to break open a 7-2 Mississauga rout. Naturally, pun intended, Lawrence was first star of the game. He put the finishing touches on his masterpiece of a week Saturday the 20th against Erie in the third night of back-to-back-to-back games scoring 2 goals and 1 assist for a second star selection as Mississauga killed Erie, in Erie, 9-3. In 41 games this year Lawrence has already destroyed his previous career best totals of 23 goals and 53 points set last season in 67 games and looks poised to capture a contract from the Lightning and possible a prominent role in the organization next season.
