LW Justin Keller, Springfield (AHL)
This week's winner is last year's runner-up for WHL Player of the Year Justin Keller, ex of the Kelowna Rockets. Keller exploded Friday night against Rochester for 1 goal and 3 assists as the Falcons fell just short of erasing an early 3 goal defecit at home against a strong Americans team. Keller was named second star of the game and his unassisted talley with 10:25 left to go in the third period of the game was a critical marker that tied the game. After going scoreless in Springfield's 3-2 win against Worcester on Saturday, Keller resurfaced on Sunday scoring the game winning goal in Lowell and again being named second star of the game for his efforts. Throughout his career in junior Keller was always known as a clutch player for the Rockets, and this past weekend the rookie forward again began do show his flair for the dramatic.
