A day after repeating as Western Hockey League player of the week, Kamloops Blazers forward JC Lipon was named Canadian Hockey League Player of the Week for the second straight week.
In three games last week, Lipon had six goals, four assists and a plus-4 rating.
A 5-foot-11.5, 180-pound center, Lipon helped the Blazers go 3-0 last week and move to the top spot in the league with 17 points. At 8-0-1, the Blazers are the only WHL team without a regulation loss.
Lipon had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win against the Victoria Royals on Wednesday, then got red-hot over the weekend. He netted his first WHL hat trick and added an assist in a 5-1 win against the Vancouver Giants and had two goals and two assists in a 5-2 win against the Calgary Hitmen.
On the season, Lipon leads the WHL with 22 points in nine games; his 13 assists also lead the league, and his nine goals are second.
