The latest Ultramar Player of Week is Rimouski Oceanic winger Dmitry Zavgorodniy. In a trio of road games, the 19-year-old from Omsk, Russia scored four goals and added a pair of assists as the Oceanic went a perfect 3-0.
On Friday night in Shawinigan, Zavgorodniy started the Rimouski road trip with an assist on the game’s opening goal. He would later add a pair of second period tallies in an 8-2 triumph over the Cataractes. He would finish the contest with a +3 rating as well as third star honors for the game.
The following night in Gatineau, the third year forward assisted on the Oceanic’s first goal of the contest, a game they would go on to win by a score of 3-2 over the Olympiques. It was Zavgorodniy’s fifth straight game with at least one point.
He would make it a six-game point streak on Sunday afternoon in Gatineau, scoring a pair of goals, including the game-winner in a 4-3 victory over the Olympiques. This performance would conclude with Zavgorodniy being named first star of the contest. For the Oceanic, it was the team’s tenth straight win.
A first-round selection of the Oceanic, seventh overall, at the 2017 CHL Import Draft, Zavgorodniy missed two months earlier this season due to injury. Nonetheless, he still holds down a tie for third in team scoring with 55 points in just 31 games. This includes 12 points since returning to the Oceanic lineup on January 24th. Zavgorodniy was selected by the Calgary Flames in the seventh round of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
