Gunnarwolfe Fontaine is this weeks’ JuniorHockey.Com’s USHL Player of the Week. This might possibly be the easiest selection we will see all season for our player of the week. On Friday night, Fontaine carried his Chicago Steel team to victory over the Youngstown Phantoms. In regulation Gunnarwolfe scored a goal in the first period. He went on to provide the assist to his teammate Casey Staum’s goal just 2:15 into the second. Fontaine topped that effort by scoring a goal of his own just over eight minutes later. Tied at four goals each the Phantoms and Steel headed to overtime. At the two minute mark, Fontaine carried the puck into the zone and drove the net and had his shot turned away. His teammate, Jimmy Dowd then took a shot that rebounded to Fontaine who was circling back at the point. Fontaine fired a wrister that beat the goalie to complete his hat trick for the night and win the game for the Chicago Steel.
Gunnarwolfe Fontaine (18) grew up in East Greenwich, RI. The left handed forward played on multiple teams in his youth including (but not limited to): Boston Little Bruins, Lawrence Academy, Cape Cod Whalers U16 and Boston Jr. Bandits U16. He has committed to play for RPI (Rensselaer Polytech. Inst.) beginning in 2019-20.
