Joining Wytinck on the six-man wrecking crew is fellow Western Hockey League star Dylan Garand from the Kamloops Blazers. Two Quebec Major Junior Hockey League players (Cedric Pare and Sam Poulin) as well as two Ontario Hockey League players (Noel Hoefenmayer and Sean Josling) round out the weekly honours.
Wytinck, 20, was shipped to the Regina Pats in early October, in exchange for a late-round draft pick in the 2022 WHL Bantam Draft. Prior to being moved, Wytinck suited up for 169 games for the Wheat Kings over four seasons, collecting 10 goals, 70 points and 74 total penalty minutes. Schmiemann has dressed in 202 WHL contests, split between the Swift Current Broncos, Calgary Hitmen and Tri-City Americans, in which the 6-foot-4, 200-pound defenceman has amassed seven goals, 38 points and 273 penalty minutes.
The sturdy defender picked up five points in two games for Regina, collecting four assists against the Red Deer Rebels on Saturday, just one day removed from putting up his second goal of the season, Friday evening against Lethbridge. In four games with the Wheat Kings, Wytinck had three points. Now in seven games with the Pats, Wytinck has added another seven points, bringing his season total to two goals and 10 points in 11 games – his best offensive production thus far in his four-year WHL career.
