Shore Sports Network Ice Hockey Player of the Week: CBA’s Christian Chouha
Every week this season, Shore Conference ice hockey fans will have their chance to vote for the Shore Sports Network Ice Hockey Player of the Week on our website.
The Week 2 Player of the Week is Christian Brothers Academy freshman forward Christian Chouha, who scored a goal in all three of the Colts’ games during the week to continue the great start to his high school career.
Chouha scored 48 seconds into the third period to give CBA a 3-0 lead during a 4-1 victory over St. Augustine to begin the week. Then, in a 3-1 victory over Gloucester Catholic in a matchup of top-five teams in New Jersey, Chouha scored again in the third period to give the Colts’ a three-goal cushion. On Sunday, CBA rallied for a 3-3 tie with Don Bosco Prep in a meeting of the top two teams in the state. Chouha’s first-period goal tied the score at one.
Through five games, Chouha is tied for the team lead with seven points on four goals and three assists. He has goals in four of five games and has recorded a point in all five contests thus far.
CBA, which is ranked No. 1 in the Shore Sports Network Top 10 and No. 1 in New Jersey, returns to action on Wednesday afternoon in a Gordon Conference clash with Pope John. The Colts are 4-0-1 on the season.
The second Player of the Week poll was decided by a razor-thin margin as Chouha secured 25.84 percent of the votes to narrowly win over Toms River East sophomore defenseman Jake Verdon (23.48 percent) and Central Regional junior forward Mark Anthony Competello (23.34 percent).
