Winnipeg product Seth Jarvis has once again been named the Western Hockey League’s best player of the past week. After earning the same title just two weeks ago, the 17-year-old Portland Winterhawks winger picked up the same recognition on Monday. Jarvis – along with Brandon product Calen Addison – was also named to this past week’s edition of the CHL Team of the Week.
A week that saw the 5-foot-10, 175-pound goal-scorer pick up four goals and nine points in just two games certainly justifies his selection. The Winterhawks – led by Jarvis – who is expected to go early in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft – went 2-0-0-0 on the week, beating the Tri-City Americans 8-2, before topping the Seattle Thunderbirds 6-5 in a shootout. Portland has now won seven-straight games and is 19-0-1-1 in its last 21.
The former Winnipeg Monarch picked up two goals and five points at home on Friday against the Americans, before scoring two goals and adding another two assists on the road the following night in Seattle. Now sitting at 26 goals and 63 points, Jarvis is ranked fourth in WHL scoring on the season, trailing only James Hamblin (72), Zane Franklin (72) and Adam Beckman (71) in the points department.
Having skated in 41 games thus far in the 2019-20 season, the RHA alum is on pace to more than double his career high output of 39 points last season. Averaging over one-and-a-half points-per-game, Jarvis has recorded at least two points in seven of his last eight contests, picking up 11 goals and 27 points in the process.
Jarvis and the Winterhawks next see action on Friday as the team travels to Everett for a road contest against the Silvertips. Puck drop is set for 9:30 PM central at Angel of the Winds Arena in Washington.
