Named the CHL Player of the Week a week prior, Lang ripped off eight goals in January and eight assists for total of 16 points in nine games while posting a plus/minus rating of +5.

"Mickey has done a great job for us not just in the last month, but all season," said Mallards coach and general manager Terry Ruskowski. "He always works hard in games and always works hard in practice. He's a player who does his job properly no matter what the situation is -- his regular shift or on the power play or the penalty kill. Off the ice, he's always smiling and always in a good mood but at the same time he loves to win."
