PORTLAND, ME – December 10, 2019 – Jake Elmer of the Maine Mariners has been named the Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week for Dec. 2-8.
Elmer scored five goals and added an assist for six points in two games last week, helping the Mariners sweep the Adirondack Thunder.
The 20-year-old recorded his second hat trick of the season, including the game-winning goal, in a 5-4 overtime win at Adirondack on Friday and added two goals and an assist in a 5-4 victory over the Thunder on Saturday at home. Elmer has done major damage against Adirondack this season, with nine of his total 10 goals and 10 of his 13 points coming against them, including two hat tricks.
