Springfield, Mass.-The American Hockey League announced today that Rockford IceHogs center Martin St. Pierre has been named the CCM/AHL Player of the Month for November.  St. Pierre recorded seven goals and 14 assists for 21 points, along with a plus-5 rating, in 13 games for the IceHogs last month.

St. Pierre's month featured a seven-game scoring streak from Nov. 3-18, during which time he registered 15 points. On Nov. 3, St. Pierre assisted on both Rockford goals, including the game-winner in the third period, in a 2-1 win vs. Manitoba. On Nov. 11, St. Pierre scored two goals and assisted on three others as the IceHogs defeated San Antonio, 8-3.  He came back with a goal and two assists at Rochester on Nov. 16, and scored the winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Syracuse on Nov. 17.
