Wong Gets CHL Player of the Week Honours

The Canadian Hockey League today announced that forward Tyler Wong of the Lethbridge Hurricanes is the CHL Player of the Week for the week ending February 28 after recording 10 points in three games including three goals and seven assists.

Wong’s week was highlighted by a career-high six-point performance last Wednesday night scoring twice with four assists earning second star honours despite a 9-8 shootout loss to the Regina Pats. He also picked up an assist in a 5-2 loss to the Brandon Wheat Kings on Friday, then finished the week with a three-point effort scoring once with two assists as second star of an 8-4 victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Hurricanes currently lead the WHL’s Central Division with a 41-20-1-1 record clinching a playoff berth for the first time since the 2008-09 season.

A 20-year-old from Cochrane, AB, Wong is playing in his fourth full WHL season and has already established career-highs in all offensive categories with 37 goals and 42 assists for 79 points in 63 games which puts him eighth overall in WHL scoring.

Also considered for the award this week was 2016 NHL Draft prospect Logan Brown of the Windsor Spitfires who scored four goals and three assists for seven points in three games, and Fabrizio Ricci of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar who scored once with five assists for six points in four games.
