Sheffield Steelers forward John Armstrong has been named EIHL Player of the Week for the period ending 29th October 2017.
Armstrong helped the South Yorkshire side secure two wins from their three games over the weekend, starting in Braehead on Friday night.
Looking to secure first place in Challenge Cup Group A, Sheffield beat the Clan 3-2 in overtime, Armstrong picking up the primary assist on Joonas Ronnberg’s opening goal before adding a second assist on Ben O’Connor’s powerplay goal during the second period.
The 29-year-old was unable to help the Steelers avoid a narrow 2-1 loss in Fife the following night, but put in a big performance against Braehead once again on the Sunday as the two sides met at Ice Sheffield in the Elite League.
With the Steelers 1-0 up in the first period, Armstrong collected an assist on Ronnberg’s 18th minute finish before hitting the back of the net himself 31-seconds later to give the home side a three-goal cushion after 20 minutes.
After a goalless second period, Armstrong netted his second goal of the night eight minutes into the final frame before adding assists on Matt Marquardt and Andre Deveaux’s goals as the Steelers wrapped up a 6-0 win to move within one point of league leaders Manchester.
Armstrong, who originally joined the Steelers from Danish side Odense Bulldogs during the summer of 2016, now has a league leading 12 goals and 20 points in 15 Elite League games this season.
