Barons forward Jordan Eberle was named the American Hockey League Player of the Month in December after also winning the CHL award in November.
Eberle recorded two hat tricks in December, including a four-goal game in a Dec. 15 win over San Antonio. Eberle’s other hat trick was New Year’s Eve in a win over the Texas Stars. Eberle scored three goals in the first period in less than four minutes, the fastest three-goal streak in franchise history.
In the month of December, Eberle produced six multiple-point games and scored 20 points, including 11 goals.
For the season Eberle leads the AHL in points with 49 points, including 24 goals.
A first-round pick by Edmonton in 2008, the 22nd overall selection, Eberle was an NHL All-Star last season. The Regina, Sask., native is playing with the Barons during the NHL lockout.
