DeAngelis helped his team complete an undefeated week in three games by contributing two goals and five assists, with at least one point in each contest. The Woodbridge, Ontario native held a strong presence on the power play, recording one goal with three assists in 20 chances. Those points were a part of the Komets' 40 percent power play efficiency rating for the week. He started the week off with a one goal, three assist performance in his team's 5-2 win over Quad City on Thanksgiving and kept that momentum as he tallied the game winning goal and an assist in the Nov. 26, 4-2 win in Evansville. DeAngelis capped off the week with one assist against Quad City on Nov. 27, securing the 5-4 victory. Of his seven points, three of them (1G, 3A) came in the third period.
The 5-10, 185-pound defenseman is in his second season with the Komets after helping his team to the IHL's Turner Cup Championship last season with 41 points (9-32=41) in 73 games. So far this season, DeAngelis leads all Komets skaters with 13 points (4-9=13).
