Cole Reinhardt has earned his second Western Hockey League Player of the Week award in three weeks. The 19-year-old forward put together an impressive eight points in two games for the Brandon Wheat Kings over the past week of play.
The Calgary, AB. product is operating at exactly a point-per-game rate with 19 goals and 30 points in 30 games thus far in 2019-20, and leads all Wheat Kings scorers. This performance has also given Reinhardt a spot on the Canadian Hockey League’s Team of the Week.
Despite only playing in two games from November 24 to December 1, Reinhardt collected four goals and eight points as Brandon split a home-and-home with the Winnipeg ICE last weekend.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound forward started his weekend off right with a hat trick and two assists in the Wheat Kings’ 7-4 home victory over the ICE, before adding another goal and two assists the following night in Winnipeg, as the Wheaties lost 6-5 at the Wayne Fleming Arena.
Reinhardt is currently on a four-game points streak, while picking up 19 points in his past 10 games played. After also earning the WHL’s weekly award on November 17, he took one week off before taking the league’s top honour back from Lethbridge’s Logan Barlage.
The Wheat Kings are back in action Tuesday evening as the Kelowna Rockets make their way to Brandon for a 7:00 PM central showdown at Westoba Place. Tickets are still available for purchase through the Wheat Kings’ box office.
