Harvard's Alex Killorn was named the ECAC Player of the Week on Monday, November 2, after scoring two goals and an assist in the Crimsonâ€™s 5-3 win vs. Dartmouth last Friday.
According to the Harvard Gazette, Killorn was named ECAC Rookie of the Week November 24, 2008, and was named an honorable mention for the Hockey Commissionersâ€™ Association National Rookie of the Month in February. He finished his freshman year with six goals, nine assists, and 15 points in 30 games.
He was a standout this past summer for the Lightning in the club's post-draft prospect camp.
Killorn was taken by the Lightning in the third round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
This is the second time in two seasons DeCoste has been traded. Last year the center/winger split the season between Brampton and the Soo, scoring 15 times while contributing 13 assists and 76 penalty minutes.
He has recorded two goals and three points along with 20 penalty minutes in 13 games played so far with the Greyhounds in this, his fourth OHL season.
DeCoste, who has a goal and an assist in his last two games, was taken by the Lightning in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
