Princeton, NJ – Brian Ward of the Adirondack Thunder is the Sher-Wood Hockey ECHL Player of the Week for Jan. 22-28.

Ward scored four goals and added three assists for seven points in a three-game series against Florida last week.

The 25-year-old recorded a goal and two assists in a 4-2 win on Wednesday, tallied two goals and an assist in a 5-4 shootout win on Friday and added a goal in a 4-3 overtime loss on Saturday. The pair of three-point games marked a season-high for the 6-2 center.

A native of Haverhill, Massachusetts, Ward has 27 points (15g-12a) in 33 games with the Thunder this season. He has also suited up in one game with Utica of the American Hockey League.

On behalf of Brian Ward, a case of pucks will be donated to an Adirondack youth hockey organization by Sher-Wood Hockey, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL.
