Wheat Kings’ Nolan Patrick named CHL Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that 2017 NHL Draft prospect Nolan Patrick of the Brandon Wheat Kings is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending May 1 after scoring three goals and four assists for seven points in three games with a plus-minus rating of plus-5.


Patrick helped power the Wheat Kings offense last week advancing to the WHL Championship Series following a 4-1 series win over the Red Deer Rebels.  While the Rebels managed to grab a 6-2 victory in Game 3 last Tuesday, it was the Wheat Kings who responded with a pair of victories to close out the series.  Patrick collected two assists in Wednesday’s Game 4 victory by a 4-2 score, then exploded offensively in Game 5 on Friday earning first star honours with a five-point performance including a hat-trick and two assists in the 5-2 series finale.  The Wheat Kings will now face the Western Conference champion Seattle Thunderbirds for the Ed Chynoweth Cup beginning Friday night in Brandon.


A 17-year-old from Winnipeg, MB, Patrick was born in September, 1998, and is playing in his second career WHL season with the Wheat Kings.  He is currently tied for first in WHL playoff scoring with 10 goals and 14 assists for 24 points in 16 games after finishing fifth during the regular season with 102 points in 72 games.


Also considered for the award this week was New York Islanders prospect Anthony Beauvillier of the Shawinigan Cataractes who scored three goals and four assists for seven points in three games against the Saint John Sea Dogs helping his club advance to the QMJHL Finals against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.  In the OHL, forward Stephen Harper scored three goals and three assists for six points in two games helping the Niagara IceDogs eliminate the Barrie Colts to advance to the league final against the London Knights.
