Seth Jarvis has been announced as the Western Hockey League’s Player of the Month for the 31 days of January 2020. This news comes as no surprise, as the 2002-born Winnipeg product has impressively put together one of the best months of offensive production in a number of years.
Jarvis, 18, plays with the Portland Winterhawks of the US Division of the WHL, and has enjoyed a monumental first month of 2020. Picking up points in each of his team’s 10 January games, the Winnipeg Monarchs bantam AAA star averaged an incredible 2.9 points-per-game, while putting up two five-point nights, as well as two four-point performances.
The third-year Winterhawk collected 11 goals, and 18 assists for 29 January points, while also taking home two WHL Player of the Week honours (January 12, January 26). His team went 10-1-1, while the offensive juggernaut put up a +17 rating. Now sitting at 30 goals and 72 points, Jarvis is ranked fourth in WHL scoring on the season, trailing only Adam Beckman (87), James Hamblin (81) and Zane Franklin (77) in the points department.
Having skated in 46 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 eight of his last 10 contests, picking up 11 goals and 28 points in the process.
Jarvis – who is expected to go early in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft – and the Winterhawks next see action on Friday as the Spokane Chiefs head to Portland for a divisional battle. Puck drop is set for 9:00 PM central at the Moda Center.
