JuniorHockey.com today announced that Brendan Shinnimin, of the Western Hockey League's Tri-City Americans, has been named the Perani's Hockey World National Player of the Week for the period ending March 25th.
The Americans picked up two wins to open the WHL play-offs in the weekend home sweep of the Everett Silvertips thanks in part to the play of Shinnimin. The native of Winnipeg, Manitoba added a pair of assists in both games.
The 21 year-old has had one heck of a season, racking up a league-leading 134 points (58g, 76a) in 69 regular season games. In 2010-2011 the veteran had 96 points (34g, 62a).
Bob Perani's Sports Shop, Inc. was started in 1976 by Bob Perani, a local Pro hockey player and fan favorite who played for a number of years as a goalie with the Flint Generals. The first store was a converted auto repair shop with only two employees. But after thirty-one years the business has become to be known as Perani's Hockey World "The Toy Store for the Hockey Player", and with 19 locations across the US and Canada with 200+ employees it is the largest independent hockey retailer in the world.
