Manitoba’s Jansen Harkins has been named the American Hockey League’s Player of the Month for November. Skating in 15 games, the third-year Moose forward led the league in scoring with 24 points.
Harkins’ 24 points came by way of four goals and 20 assists. 24 points in a month are most by any AHL player since Kenny Agostino put up 25 in December of 2016, nearly four years ago. The second-highest scorers in the month of November registered just 18 points.
Following an eight-point-in-two-game stretch to open the month of November, Harkins – the Winnipeg Jets’ second round selection (47th overall) in 2015 – also put together a 10-game point-scoring streak from November 2 through 20 in which the 22-year-old registered 18 points. He was held without a point in just one November contest, while posting multi-point outings upon six occasions.
Harkins finished the month of November tied for first place in league scoring with six goals and 27 points. Now just one full week into December, the Moose forward remains second in AHL scoring through 26 games played in 2019-20. The North Vancouver product helped Manitoba to an 11-4-0 record during the month of November. The Moose are now 13-13-0 and return to action on Wednesday in Texas against the Stars.
