Winnipeg’s Seth Jarvis Named WHL’s Player of the Week

On Monday afternoon, the Western Hockey League announced its Player of the Week for the week spanning May 3-9. The 19-year-old Winnipegger had himself a strong week that saw five goals and seven points come off his stick for the United States Division’s Portland Winterhawks.

Skating in just three games, the speedy forward collected a hat trick in his first game of the week – a 7-2 victory over the Tri-City Americans – helping his Hawks start the week off on the right foot.

Portland then relied on Jarvis’ scoring touch once again in its next game –  a 5-1 victory over Spokane. The former RINK Hockey Academy star then put up a goal and two assists in his club’s final outing of the week, helping improve his total season output to 15 goals and 25 points in 23 games.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound forward ranks first on the Winterhawks with four power play goals, second in goals (15) and even strength goals scored (nine). Selected 13th overall in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes, Jarvis began the 2020-21 season with the  Chicago Wolves as an underage rookie, where he put up seven goals and 11 points in the first nine professional games of his career.

Jarvis and the Winterhawks conclude the 2020-21 season on Tuesday evening in a 4:00 PM central matchup with the Tri-City Americans. The game can be viewed live on WHL TV.
