Greenville, SC – The Greenville Swamp Rabbits, proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, announced in conjunction with the ECHL that forward Angelo Miceli has been selected as the Sher-wood Hockey / ECHL Player of the Week for March 6-12. The second-year pro totaled 10 points (4g, 6a) helping Greenville tally three wins during the week.
The Swamp Rabbits forward grabbed a pair of assists on Joe Houk’s goals in a 7-3 win against the Wichita Thunder on Tuesday night. The following morning, he assisted on Houk’s game-tying goal in the third period.
Miceli tied a career-best on Friday night against the Florida Everblades with a four-point (2G, 2A) performance. He opened the Swamp Rabbits scoring 41 seconds into the second period and factored in on three of Greenville’s four goals in the third period. It is the second time this season that the Montreal, QC native has gathered four points in a contest.
On Saturday and Sunday, he earned three more points (2G, 1A) against the Atlanta Gladiators, extending his point streak to five games. Miceli has produced 17 points (7G, 10A) in nine straight home games dating back to January 24th.
The 5-foot-10 skater ranks fourth in the ECHL with 48 assists and his 67 points are ninth best in the league. As the top ECHL point producer during the last month, Miceli has tallied 23 points (9G, 14A) in the last 14 games. Angelo is climbing the franchise all-time lists during his first season with Greenville. The center’s points and assists are both the third-highest all-time totals in a single season.
In 85 career ECHL games, Miceli has averaged more than a point per game, earning 26 goals and adding 61 assists. He also tallied four points (3G, 1A) in 29 AHL games with St. John’s in the American Hockey League as a rookie.
