Brendan Brisson is this week's Great Western Futures Super Camp USHL Player of the Week. What makes a good player a great player? The answer – consistency. Chicago Steel’s Brendan Brisson put up a solid week against the Green Bay Gamblers and the Muskegon Lumberjacks. 

On Friday, he started the weekend with the first goal of the Steel’s 2-1 victory against the Gamblers. He did the exact same thing to start the night on Saturday. He opened the game by scoring first on Green Bay’s Nicholas Grabko. He later assisted on John Spetz’s goal late in the second. Chicago would finish with the win, 4-2. Last but not least, Sunday night would find Brisson with the puck courtesy of Sam Colangelo. Brisson beat Eric Green to score the final goal in Chicago’s defeat of Muskegon, 3-1. Three wins for Chicago, each with a goal from Brisson defined the Steel’s weekend.

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. Like this week’s Goalie of the Week: Erik Portillo, Chicago’s Brisson has committed to play for the University of Michigan beginning in 2020
