Brendan Brisson is this week's Great Western Futures Super Camp USHL Player of the Week. Chicago Steel’s Brendan Brisson put up an impressive week at the expense of the Youngstown Phantoms. On Friday, he started the Steel’s assault against the Phantom goalie, Dominic Basse. Three Chicago goals later, Basse would be retired before the end of the first. Youngstown would replace Basse with Colin Purcell and again Brisson would net the first of what would be yet another five Chicago goals. The second goal Purcell would face would come off of Brisson’s stick -again, to complete his hat-trick. Brendan would continue to assist teammate Gunnarwolfe Fontaine to open the third period in the 9-5 Chicago victory. Building off his impressive performance Friday, Brisson assisted teammate Uula Ruikka on Chicago’s opening goal against Youngstown on Saturday. He continued with another goal 8:30 into the second period courtesy of Mathieu De St. Phalle and Sean Farrell.

Forward, Brendan Brisson  (18) is a native of Manhattan Beach, CA. Through his youth, Brisson spent the majority of his development with the Los Angeles Jr. Kings of the Tier One Elite Hockey League and Shattuck St. Mary's Prep. He was drafted in 2017, #152 overall by the Green Bay Gamblers in the USHL Futures Draft. Brendan played six games last season with the Gamblers. Now with the Chicago Steel, Brisson has committed to play for the University of Michigan beginning in 2020
