Brandon Wheat Kings forward Braydon Schenn has been named Canadian Hockey League player of the week.
Schenn, the younger brother of Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Luke Schenn, had one goal and six assists in a pair of Wheat Kings victories over Prince Albert last week. He had four assists in a 7-2 win Friday night, and added a goal and two assists in Saturday night's 7-4 triumph.
The 17-year-old Saskatoon native sits 12th in the WHL with 56 points (19 goals, 37 assists) in 44 games. He's ranked fifth among North American skaters for this June's NHL draft.
Brett Parnham of the OHL's Oshawa Generals (two goals, five assists in three games) and Jan Stransky of the QMJHL's Halifax Mooseheads (four goals, two assists in two games) were also nominated.
Matt Hackett of the Plymouth Whalers earned the weekly goaltender nod after going 2-0-0 with one shutout, a 1.50 goals-against average and a .957 save percentage.
Hackett, an 18-year-old native of London, Ont., made 30 saves in Friday's 5-3 win over the Barrie Colts and followed with a 37-save shutout in a 5-0 victory over the Owen Sound Attack on Saturday.
Maxime Clermont of the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympiques (2-0-0, 2.00 GAA) and world junior gold medallist Dustin Tokarski of the Spokane Chiefs (3-0-0, 1.30 GAA) were the other nominees.
