Mac Swanson, the 16-year old junior hockey rookie was named Alaska Athlete of the Week for his continued torrid play.
The Anchorage forward has been on a heater all season long. He owns the longest current points streak in the country’s best junior league.
Swanson has scored 5 goals and 10 assists for 15 points in his seven-game points streak for the Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League.
Four times during his streak he has registered multiple points, including a four-assist game that ties him for most assists in a game this season in the league.
The North Dakota commit owns 7-16–23 totals in 18 games overall to tie for fourth in the league in scoring. The players who rank above Swanson or are tied with him in scoring are 19, 18, 18, 19 and 17.
