Manhattan Beach native, Jr. Kings product Brisson tabbed USHL Forward of the Week
Chicago Steel forward Brendan Brisson has been named the USHL Forward of the Week for the week ending Jan. 19, 2020.
Brisson came up big for the Steel in a weekend sweep of the Omaha Lancers.
On Friday night, the University of Michigan commit assisted on an equalizing tally from fellow forward Sean Farrell with one second remaining in the first period before setting up Farrell’s overtime winner in a 5-4 win over the Lancers.
The next night, Brisson again collected an assist in the first period before potting a pair of goals of his own in the third period of a 6-1 Steel win.
Brisson has been an offensive force for the Steel this season with 35 points (17 goals, 18 assists) in 28 games. His 35 points ranks fifth on the Steel but is still good for ninth overall in the USHL.
The Manhattan Beach native and Los Angeles Jr. Kings graduate was listed 31st among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s midterm report and has had a busy season, representing Team USA at the World Junior A Challenge as well as appearing for Team Gomez at the 2020 BioSteel All-American Game.
At the World Junior A Challenge, Brisson was twice named U.S. Player of the Game.
