Oleg Yevenko was named the CCM Defensive Player of the Week for Week 17 in the USHL. Yevenko recorded two points (1g, 1a) and a plus-two rating in the lone game for Fargo last week. After turning 19-years-old the day before, he assisted on the first goal of the game vs. Team USA. Later in the contest with his team trailing 3-2, he scored the tying goal with just over seven minutes to play in the third period. The Force would go on to win the contest 4-3 in a shootout. The 6-7, 225-pound native of Belarus is playing his first season in the USHL and has tallied six points (2g, 4a) in 32 games for the Force (USHL.com).
