Guildford Flames forward John Dunbar has been named the Elite League Player of the Week for the period ending October 22nd 2017.


The 26-year-old has been a consistent performer all season for Paul Dixon’s side and contributed with six points over the weekend.


He scored one and assisted in two during their slender 5-4 loss at Belfast Giants on Friday before picking up three assists in their 6-4 home win over Manchester Storm.


In the league, Dunbar leads the scoring charts with Manchester Storm’s Dane Byers with 19 points from nine games, picking up seven goals and 12 assists to his name.


Overall, it brings his total to an impressive 28 points in 14 appearances in all competitions, with the Flames in the top eight following the weekend results.


It’s the first time Dunbar has won the EIHL Player of the Week award, but the second Surrey-based player to take the accolade following on from Ian Watters earlier in the season.


He’s also scoring at least a point in every competitive game he’s played since joining the Flames from ECHL side Norfolk Admirals this summer.


And they’ll be hoping for more of the same when Guildford take on Dundee Stars in a home and away double header this weekend.
