Jr. Ducks, Jr. Kings alum, Glendale native Ghantous named WCHA Forward of the Month

 

Northern Michigan sophomore Andre Ghantous has been named the WCHA Forward of the Month.

Ghantous finished second nationally in points (16), tied for the national lead in assists (11) and led the WCHA in assists per game (1.10) and points per game (1.60) in 10 February games for the Wildcats.

The Glendale native, who played youth hockey for the Anaheim Jr. Ducks and Los Angeles Jr. Kings, posted five power-play points over the month, scoring two goals and picking up another three assists on the man-advantage. He also scored the team’s first short-handed goal of the season in their Feb. 12 win over then-No. 17 Bemidji State.

Ghantous led the league in points last month, three ahead of the next closest scorer in linemate Joseph Nardi. The sophomore tied for first nationally in short-handed goals scored in the month of February. He was named Forward of the Week by the WCHA on Feb. 15 following the Wildcats’ weekend sweep over Bemidji State.
