Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that forward Adam Brooks of the Regina Pats is the CHL Player of the Week for the week ending February 21 after recording 13 points in four games scoring five goals with eight assists along with a plus-minus rating of plus-6.
Brooks tallied three multi-point performances last week helping the Pats extend their winning-streak to five games as they battle for wildcard playoff positioning in the WHL’s Eastern Conference with 63 points. Last Monday he picked up a game-tying assist then scored in the shootout to lift the Pats to a 4-3 win over the Swift Current Broncos, then scored his second hat-trick of the season while adding an assist on Wednesday earning first star honours in a 4-2 win over the Prince Albert Raiders. Brooks earned first star honours again on Friday with a career-high six point effort scoring two goals and four assists in a 7-5 victory against the Kootenay Ice, then finished his week Sunday with two assists as part of a 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings.
A 19-year-old from Winnipeg, MB, Brooks is playing in his fourth career WHL season in Regina. The Pats captain currently ranks second in WHL scoring with career-highs in all offensive categories including 33 goals and 64 assists for 97 points in 58 games.
Also considered for the award this week was 2016 NHL Draft prospect Pierre-Luc Dubois of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles who scored three goals and four assists for seven points in two games, and Los Angeles Kings prospect Mike Amadio of the North Bay Battalion who scored seven goals and two assists for nine points in four games.
