Rage's Scott Wray Named Sherwood/CHL Player of the Month
11/02/07 - Central Hockey League (CHL) Rocky Mountain Rage
Broomfield, Colo. - Rocky Mountain Rage assistant captain and leading scorer Scott Wray has been named the October Sher-wood/Central Hockey League Player of the Month. Wray ended the month ranked second in the league in overall scoring with 13 points (4g-9a) and tied for first in assists. He becomes the first Rage player in team history to garner a league monthly award.
"The way Scott has played is what we expected from a player of his caliber when we signed him in the off-season," said head coach Tracy Egeland. "He's a very talented offensive player, and he's been a big reason why we've had some early success. But, we all know it's very early in the season, and there's still a long way to go before we truly accomplish anything."
Wray's performance helped the Rage enter November perched atop the Northwest Division standings with a record of 4-0-1 and nine points. He began the campaign with a strong effort from the first drop of the puck, recording two goals, including both the team's first goal of the year and the game-winning tally in a season-opening win on Oct. 19 against the Odessa Jackalopes. The ninth-year pro went on to register at least one point in each game Rocky Mountain played last month and had a hand in nearly 70% of the team's goals. He also leads the team with a +9 rating, the league's best total of any player not wearing a Laredo Bucks sweater.
