Lethbridge Hurricanes’ defenceman Koletrane Wilson has earned a spot on the Vaughn CHL Team of the Week based on individual performances from Oct. 21-27.
Wilson is joined by Portland Winterhawks forward Jake Gricius.
Wilson tallied five points (one goal and four assists) in three games during the week. He was a key performer in last Tuesday’s 4-3 decision over Red Deer in which he finished with two points, including a power-play marker midway through the middle frame en route to second-star recognition.
Gricius amassed seven points, including three goals, over two games. That stretch included a five-point effort against Spokane on Friday in which Gricius finished with two goals and three assists.
Rounding out the Team of the Week at forward are Val-d’Or Foreurs right-wing Nicolas Ouellet, who wrapped up the week with eight points (7G-1A) in three games, and London Knights centre Connor McMichael, who finished with eight points, including four goals, in three games.
Wilson was joined on the blue-line by Ottawa 67’s overage rearguard Noel Hoefenmayer, who earned a spot for the second week running following a seven-point performance over two games.
In goal is Guelph Storm netminder Nico Daws who won all three of his appearances, turning aside a combined 111 shots for a .949 save percentage and 1.95 goals-against average.
Hurricanes begin a three-game Manitoba trip tonight in Winnipeg with the first of back-to-back games with the Ice. The teams also play Friday before Hurricanes play the Wheat Kings Saturday in Brandon.
