Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League announced today that Everett Silvertips captain Bryce Kindopp has been named the WHL On the Run Player of the Week for the week ending September 22, 2019.
Kindopp recorded six points (3G-3A) and a plus-three rating in two games as the Silvertips split their opening two games of the 2019-20 WHL Regular Season.
In his team’s home opener Friday, Kindopp recorded a goal and an assist in a 4-2 loss against the Tri-City Americans. He earned the primary assist on the team’s first goal of the game, then scored his first goal of the season midway through the third period. In Saturday’s 6-0 win against the Victoria Royals, Kindopp stepped up his production with a pair of goals and four points. Kindopp scored Everett’s second and fifth goals of the game while recording primary assists on the team’s first and third goals. He was named the third star of the game for his efforts. All three of Kindopp’s goals this weekend came at even strength.
Earlier this month, the Silvertips named Kindopp the 17th captain in franchise history. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound product of Lloydminster, Alta. is coming off a 2018-19 season that saw him post career-high totals in all three major offensive categories, recording 73 points (39G-34A), including 12 power-play goals, five short-handed goals, and 10 game-winning goals in 67 games. The Silvertips originally selected Kindopp in the third round, 49th overall, of the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.
For his entire WHL career, the 20-year-old Kindopp has accumulated 129 points (73G-56A), including 21 power-play goals, six short-handed goals, and 17 game-winning goals in 205 WHL regular season games. In 42 WHL playoff games, Kindopp has posted 17 points (8G-9A), including two power-play goals and one game-winning goal.
The Silvertips return to action when they head to British Columbia on Saturday, September 28 (7:05 p.m. PT) to take on the Kelowna Rockets at Prospera Place.
