Jr. Coyotes alum, Scottsdale product Doan garners weekly honors from USHL
The USHL announced Tuesday that Chicago Steel forward Josh Doan is the league’s Co-Forward of the Week.
Doan only played in a single game last weekend but made his ice time count, registering four goals in Friday night’s game. While the four-goal performance was a first for Doan, it was his third hat trick in his second season in the USHL.
The Arizona State University commit’s 70 points this season was third best in the league with 39 assists being tied for third as well. The 70-point season (53 games, 31-39-70) was a massive increase from his 14 points (5-9-14) in 45 games last season.
Doan was named a C-rated skater in the updated rankings from NHL Central Scouting after initially being left off the preliminary list from the service. More recently, Bob McKenzie ranked Doan 80 among 2021 NHL Draft prospects in his TSN mid-season rankings.
The Jr. Coyotes grad is looking to follow in the footsteps of his father Shane, a 21-year veteran of the NHL who was drafted seventh overall by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1995 NHL Draft.
