Also considered for the award this week was San Jose Sharks prospect Chris Tierney of the London Knights who scored twice with five assists for seven points in two games of the OHL’s Western Conference Semi-Finals against the Guelph Storm.  In the QMJHL, 2014 NHL Draft prospect Nikolaj Ehlers of the Halifax Mooseheads scored two goals and four assists for six points in two second round playoff games against the Gatineau Olympiques.
