The Ontario Hockey League today announced that St. Louis Blues prospect Jordan Kyrou of the Sarnia Sting is the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week for the week ending October 22 with eight points including four goals and four assists in three games with a plus-minus rating of plus-6.

Kyrou led the league in scoring as the Sting extended their franchise record winning-streak to 11 games following a trio of road victories last week to improve their first overall standing to 12-1-0-0. He began the week with his top performance of the season scoring his first career hat-trick while adding an assist as first star of an 8-2 win over the North Bay Battalion.

The six-foot, 185-pound right wing is currently second in the OHL in scoring with 22 points (8 G, 14 A), behind only Owen Sound center and Vegas Golden Knights’ 2017 first rounder (13th overall) Nick Suzuki. He finished the 2016-17 season sixth overall in OHL scoring as an 18-year-old with a 30-64-94 line (plus-5, 36 PM, 9PP, 4 GW) in 66 games, and won just over 50% of the faceoffs he took (169 of 336) for Sarnia in his draft year.

Kyrou, chosen 35th overall by the Blues in 2016, is one of the players who will be featured in the “Tomorrow’s Blues” column in Wednesday nght’s “St. Louis Game Time” paper. Don't miss it...
