The PJHL has named its Players of the Week for the week ending Oct. 1.
Rylan Oatman, Forward, North Van Wolf Pack – Having just two games to make an impression in the POW considerations this week, Oatman made the most of his second outing. The Squamish, B.C. product went off for a hat trick and two helpers as the Wolf Pack knocked off the previously unbeaten Delta Ice Hawks 8-1. He was named the game’s 1st Star, scored the game-winner and a power-play tally and doubled his season offensive output.
Jesse Brideau, Forward, Chilliwack Jets – With a hat trick Sunday, the native of Prince George, B.C. capped a five-point week where he hit the scoresheet in each of three games. Brideau netted the game-winner in a 4-2 road victory over Chilliwack and followed that with a helper on the opening goal in a 3-2 shootout loss to Surrey. He scored all his team’s goals and was named 1st Star in the weekend finale but it was not enough in a 4-3 setback to Ridge Meadows.
Teo Lin, Forward, Richmond Sockeyes – Lin scored a goal each game on his way to a six-point week, helping the Sockeyes to five of a possible six points. He sparked a third-period comeback in an eventual 5-4 shootout loss to Delta and then blew up for a goal and three assists and 3rd Star in a 7-1 home win over Port Moody. The hometown Richmond, B.C. product scored on the power play, the game’s opening goal, in a 5-2 road win over Grandview to wrap the week.
