The rearguard earned WHL and CHL Player of the Week honours with his stellar performance and will now get set to play the Everett Silvertips in the second round. Seattle went 6-4-0-0 in 10 games against the Silvertips this season. Read about Bear and the role he provides on his club and in his community here. Read about his electrifying offensive season here.
