Phantom's Renouf nets USHL's weekly honor

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – After clinching a pair of wins over the weekend for the Youngstown Phantoms, defenseman Dan Renouf has amassed himself some individual accolades. The second-year blue liner was named the United States Hockey League's CCM Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced Monday afternoon.

Renouf, 18, scored a pair of game-winning goals and accumulated a plus-5 rating as the Phantoms defeated the Omaha Lancers Friday and Des Moines Buccaneers Saturday to go to 2-0-0 on the young season. This is the first time that Renouf, a Maine commit, has collected the USHL's weekly honor.

"It's an honor, not just for Dan, but for the team and all of our defensemen," head coach Anthony Noreen said. "Danny came back with the expectation from both sides of being in a much bigger role – still being responsible defensively, but also contributing and being productive offensively – and he was rewarded with a good first weekend."

The Pickering, Ontario, native beat Lancers goaltender Alex Lyon with a low shot from the point that rang off the post with 2:21 remaining to put Phantoms up 4-3 on Friday. Then Saturday, after a frantic final minute that saw the Phantoms pull the goaltender and score two goals in the final 51 seconds, Renouf floated a wrist shot through a screen in overtime to complete the 4-3 come-from-behind win over Des Moines.

The two goals over the weekend eclipsed Renouf's rookie campaign total in 2011-12. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound defensemen recorded 1-14-15 in 58 games last season, with 10 of his points coming over his final 20 games.
