Milton Keynes Lightning forward Denny Kearney has been named Elite League Player of the Week for the period ending 24th September 2017.
Kearney scored twice during the second period of Saturday’s game against former club Cardiff, including the game winning goal, to help the Lightning record a 5-2 win over the defending Challenge Cup holders, also earning himself an assist during the contest.
The 29-year-old American then followed up that performance with a hat trick during Sunday’s game in Coventry, again scoring the game winning goal for the Lightning as they beat their West Midlands rivals 7-4 at The Skydome to move to the top of Challenge Cup Group C.
Kearney joined the Lightning from Cardiff in June, and has recorded five goals and seven points in three Challenge Cup games to date, adding a further one goal and two points in three Elite League games so far this season.
The Lightning will be hoping to continue their recent good form this weekend when they take on fellow EIHL newcomers Guildford at Planet Ice Milton Keynes on Saturday before heading north on Sunday to face Dundee Stars in the Elite League.
