Wheaties captain earns WHL honour

  • Print

Brandon Wheat Kings captain Mark Stone, 19, has been named the Western Hockey League player of the week after he scored eight points and had a plus-4 rating in three games last week for the Wheat Kings.

It is the second WHL player-of-the-week honour so far this season for the Winnipeg native who recently signed an entry-level NHL contract with the Ottawa Senators. Stone currently leads the WHL scoring race with 54 points in 23 games and he is third overall in goals with 22.

The Wheat Kings have won five of their last six games to sit second in the WHL’s East division and Eastern Conference with a wins-losses-overtime losses-shootout losses record of 16-7-1-1.

Seattle Thunderbirds goaltender, Calvin Picard of Winnipeg, has been nominated as the Canadian Hockey League goaltender of the week after he posted a pair of wins last week, including a shut out and stopped 90 of 93 shots faced. He led Seattle wins over the two tops teams in the WHL U.S. Division including a 3-0 victory over the Tri-City Americans and a 6-3 win over the Portland Winterhawks.
