The Western Hockey League has announced that Moose Jaw’s Jett Woo has been named its Player of the Week for the time period of December 3-9, 2018.

Winnipeg’s Jett Woo Collects WHL Player of the Week

The 6-foot, 205-pound defenceman out of Winnipeg put together a stellar week of hockey, putting up seven points in just three games of action. 

The second round NHL draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks began the week off with the first four-point game of his WHL career, as he collected a goal and three assists in the Warriors’ 6-5 overtime loss to the Medicine Hat Tigers on Wednesday evening.

Woo then registered two assists in Moose Jaw’s come-from-behind victory over the Saskatoon Blades on Friday. Both his points were primary assists, as the 19-year-old helped cue the comeback for the visitors at the SaskTel Centre. The smooth skating defenceman wasn’t quite finished there, as he collected yet another assist the following day in the second half of the Warriors’ home-and-home with Saskatoon. 

The former Winnipeg AAA Warrior and Wild now has five goals and 23 points in 24 games for Moose Jaw this season. Woo is also riding an eight-game point streak, and has now recorded points in 14 of his last 16 games. Over that span of 14 games, the former 2018 37th overall draft pick has four goals and 21 points. Woo was the second Manitoban to win the WHL’s Player of the Week award in a period of two weeks, as Portland’s Cody Glass collected the weekly honour just seven days prior.
