Larsen named the KHL Defenseman of the Week

  • Philip Larsen Jokerit 1516

Philip Larsen was named the best defenceman of last week in KHL. The Danish player scored points in all of the three matches and did his part in getting Jokerit to reach seven set points.

Larsen made five points (4+1) in three matches and fired towards the goal up to 14 times. He wasn’t even once on the opponent’s ice when he scored and got the reading of +5 in his regular-season point stats for the week. He is the second best defenceman in Jokerit. He has achieved the points 2+12=14 for 21 matches.

KHL awards the best players of the week after every division. This season the acknowledgments have been received by the netminder Riku Helenius, defenceman Jesper B. Jensen and forward Brandon Kozun before Larsen in Jokerit.
