For CHL Picks of the Week you will need to pick the winner of a game in the Western Hockey League, OHL and QMJHL. Simply make your picks for each game and you’ll accumulate points based on the number of picks you get correct. Each correct pick will earn one (1) point. Come back after the end of each week to make your picks for the next round.
The Week Four matchup in the WHL sees the B.C. Division champion Vancouver Giants head south of the border to take on the Tri-City Americans. Both teams have already secured a playoff spot, but there is still plenty on the line for both teams to play for. The Giants still have a strong chance to secure the top spot in the Western Conference while the Americans are looking to make a late push to overtake third place in the division.
Vancouver has won all three meetings in the season series to date, though their last meeting was a close 5-4 win in overtime for the Giants. 2019 NHL Draft prospect Bowen Byram leads scoring in the season series with seven points (3G-4A) in three games, including the game-winning goal in the overtime contest. They’ll have to contend with an Americans team that is 19-8-3-0 at home this season. Twenty-year-old forward Parker AuCoin leads the Americans with 75 points (38G-37A) in 63 games. Tune into the featured WHL matchup on WHLLive.com!
Make your prediction, along with your selections for winners in the OHL and QMJHL for an opportunity to win great prizes from the CHL!
