(Toledo, OH) – Forward Sam Craggs has been named Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week for the week November 6 through November 12.

Craggs led the way for the Walleye to win two of the three weekend games over Fort Wayne with seven points (4G, 3A), that included two shorthanded goals and one game-winning tally. The 26-year-old scored two goals with an assist in Friday’s 6-4 win before netting his two shorthanded goals in the 7-4 victory Saturday. He finished off the weekend with a pair of assists in the Walleye 6-5 loss at home on Sunday.

The Elmhurst, Illinois native is enjoying a breakout season with 13 points (6G, 7A) in Toledo’s first seven games of the year with all of those coming during his personal six-game point streak. He is currently playing as a plus-10 which leads the Walleye. Craggs has played his entire pro career with the Walleye, appearing in 78 games with 38 points (17G, 21A) and is a career plus-17.

Prior to pro career, Craggs played for Bowling Green State University and left as their all-time leader in career games played with 181 and finished ranked ninth all-time in penalty minutes with 295. The 26-year-old also scored 30 goals with 34 assists and a plus-21 in his college career.
