Hunter Fejes named Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week

ORLANDO, Fla. — The ECHL announced today that Orlando Solar Bears forward Hunter Fejes has been named the Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week for Dec. 27-Jan. 2.

Fejes, 27, scored five goals, including a pair of game-winners, and added two assists for seven points in three games last week.

The forward posted three points (2g-1a) in a 4-3 win at Florida on Wednesday, including a pair of shorthanded goals, becoming only the third player in team history to record two shorthanded goals in a single game. Fejes then added a goal and an assist in a 5-4 overtime victory against South Carolina on Friday and netted a pair of goals in a 3-2 win at Greenville on Saturday.

A native of Anchorage, Alaska, Fejes has posted seven points (5g-2a) in seven games with the Solar Bears this season after starting the year with Czech-based club Orli Znojmo in the Central European ICEHL, where he had 13 points (6g-7a) in 23 games.

Fejes has totaled 129 points (65g-54a) in 147 career ECHL games with Orlando, Wheeling and Rapid City while adding 14 points (4g-10a) in 89 career American Hockey League games with Manitoba, Rockford, Toronto, Tucson and Springfield.

Prior to turning pro, Fejes recorded 56 points (26g-30a) in 138 career games at Colorado College.

Fejes was selected by the Phoenix Coyotes in the sixth round, 178th overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft.

On behalf of Hunter Fejes, a case of pucks will be donated to an Orlando youth hockey organization by Inglasco, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Inglasco has donated more than 45,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.
