Emil Öhrvall is this weeks’ Great Western Futures Super Camp USHL Player of the Week. This was an easy pick after the week that Emil put up. In Saturday’s game against the Sioux Falls Stampede, Emil scored the first two goals of the three put up by the Black Hawks. Tied at the end of regulation the game went into overtime when Öhrvall scored the game-winner. The goal also completed Emil’s hat-trick for the night. This is the second time Öhrvall has earned the USHL Player of the Week honor (11/19/18).

Emil Öhrvall (20) is a Sweedish import hailing from Växjö, Sweeden. The left wing grew up playing with the Växjö Lakers HC. In 2015, Öhrvall began to play in the United States with Shattuck St. Mary’s where he amassed 30 goals and 35 assists in his lone season there. His performance secured him a spot with the Black Hawks the following season. The 2017-18 season was spent playing in the NCAA with the Rensselaer Polytech Institute Engineers before returning to Waterloo for the current season. Öhrvall has committed to play for the University of Michigan beginning in 2019.
