Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League announced today that Lethbridge Hurricanes forward Jordy Bellerive has been named the WHL On the Run Player of the Week for the week ending March 10, 2019.
Bellerive, a Pittsburgh Penguins prospect, recorded seven points (4G-3A) and a plus-six rating in three games this week as the Hurricanes went 3-0-0-0, extending their season-high winning streak to six games. The Hurricanes’ wins this week also ensured their home-ice advantage in the first round of the 2019 WHL Playoffs.
Friday in a 5-2 win against the Medicine Hat Tigers, Bellerive scored the Hurricanes first goal and assisted on their third goal, at even strength and on the power play; respectively. For his efforts, Bellerive was awarded the first star of the game. The next night in their last home game of the season, the Hurricanes hosted the Calgary Hitmen and won 7-4 with thanks to Bellerive’s three goals and two assists. Bellerive earned the second star of the game and the first star of the night in the WHL on Saturday.
With 81 points (32G-49A) in 66 games, Bellerive sits in 11th place in WHL scoring this season among all WHL players. Over the 2018-19 WHL Regular Season, Bellerive has totalled eight power-play goals, one short-handed goal and four game-winning goals.
The 5-foot-11, 194-pound centreman was selected second overall at the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft by the Hurricanes. In 272 career WHL regular season games, Bellerive has tallied 265 points (116G-149A), including 33 power-play goals, five short-handed goals and 18 game-winning goals. A product of North Vancouver, B.C., Bellerive signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Penguins after attending training camp on an invite in September 2017.
On the road for the remainder of the season, Bellerive and the Hurricanes take on the Red Deer Rebels on Friday, March 15 (7:00 p.m. MT) at the Centrium.
