Cole Perfetti was on fire for most of April and the AHL recognized this by naming him the AHL Rookie of the Month. Here is what they had to say about the Jets prospect:

Perfetti, the CCM/AHL Rookie of the Month, tallied four goals and nine assists for 13 points in nine games for Manitoba last month, including a seven-game scoring streak.

Perfetti had the first multiple-point game of his pro career on Apr. 8, picking up two assists in an 8-5 win over Belleville. He recorded two more assists in a 3-2 overtime win over the Senators on Apr. 10, then posted two goals and an assist while earning first-star honors in a 5-1 victory over Belleville on Apr. 12. Perfetti kicked off a five-game series with Stockton by scoring a goal in a 5-2 win on Apr. 22, and notched a goal and two assists in a 3-0 decision on Apr. 24.

Pretty crazy to think about the fact that in a normal year he wouldn’t even of had this opportunity but he has taken advantage of it and then some as he continues to grow as a hockey player.
