Glasgow’s Braehead Clan forward Tyler Shattock has been named the Elite League Player of the Week for week ending 11th March 2018.
The Glasgow side picked up five points from six in three games that have seen them maintain their grip on the precious eighth place spot and play-off qualification.
Shattock is focussed on winning their remaining games that will secure the eighth spot they’re fighting so hard for with a couple of weeks to go.
“It doesn’t matter who we play right now,” Shattock said. “It’s all about getting the wins and we know winning the games we have left will secure us that spot
“It’s been a fairly good week I think, but most importantly we picked up five points out of six. We’re in a dogfight to get into the play-offs so it’s been good.
“I don’t know if we’re under extra pressure, but it’s a good time of the year and every game is important for us. If we can continue that, we can lock up eighth place.
“We’ve beaten some good teams stretch which has shown we can compete and confidence is good right now.”
Shattock’s week had the best possible start when he picked up five assists in Wednesday’s 7-2 win over Edinburgh Capitals.
Then he took his form to Belfast Giants on Saturday where he scored Clan’s second and fifth goals to secure a huge win on the road.
The forward ended the weekend with an assist on Braehead’s equalising goal for Robbie Lepine and although John Tripp’s side went down 3-2 in overtime, it was considered a successful week.
Tripp himself was pleased with Shattock’s contribution and the way he’s returned to form since coming back from injury at the end of February.
“Tyler’s award is indicative of the form of the team and for him to pick up as many as nine points this week shows we’re heading in the right direction,” Tripp said.
“Since coming back from his injury, he’s thrown himself straight back into action and he was a big player in what was a big week for my players.”
