There is a moment in your life, and it happens pretty early, when you have a birthday but for some reason your party is held another day that is more convenient. That is like winning player of the week. Plenty of people congratulate you at the time but, the official stuff? The presents? They come later. So it will be with T.J. Brennan, CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the opening frame of the season. The AHL will provide the hardware that goes with the award at a later game.
