Medicine Hat's Valk named WHL player of the week

Medicine Hat Tigers center Curtis Valk was named Denny's WHL Player of the Week on Monday after totaling seven goals and three assists in four games last week.

Valk, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound center, opened his week with two goals Wednesday in a 4-3 shootout win against the Kelowna Rockets. Friday was a memorable night as he scored four goals and added an assist in a 10-1 win at the Calgary Hitmen. He had a pair of assists in a 5-4 win against the Regina Pats on Saturday, and finished his week with a goal in a 3-2 overtime win against the Moose Jaw Warriors.

With his big week, the 2013 NHL Draft-eligible forward is second in goals in the WHL with 14, and fourth with 25 points.
