Tweet from @PetesOHLhockey: Coming up big with a huge save in his hometown in the 2nd, @dylanwells30 has us tied at 3-3. Just over 10 minutes left in reg. #petesrising 


D Ethan Bear, Seattle Thunderbirds

Drafted 124th overall (5th Round) in 2015

Seattle Thunderbirds vs Tri-City Americans - Seattle swept series 4-0

Next up: Seattle Thunderbirds vs Everett Silvertips

Ethan Bear's regular season was nothing short of outstanding and he has not slowed down in the post-season. Bear and the Thunderbirds struck the Tri-City Americans out of the Western Hockey League Playoffs with four consecutive wins, largely due to the jolt Bear gave his club. The Oilers prospect ended the series with two goals, seven assists and nine points, good enough to put him in a tie for first in points among defenceman in the post-season. 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.

D Caleb Jones, Portland Winterhawks

Drafted 117th overall (4th round) in 2015

Portland Winterhawks vs Prince George Cougars - Portland won series 4-2

Next up: Portland Winterhawks vs Kelowna Rockets

After winning a gold medal at the 2017 World Junior Championship with the U.S., Caleb Jones' eyes are on an Ed Chynoweth Cup. The Oilers fourth-round selection in the 2015 NHL Draft is already off to a good start, upsetting the Prince George Cougars in six games. As expected, Jones had himself a fine series, dishing six helpers in those six games. Next up for the Winterhawks is a series with the Kelowna Rockets. The Winterhawks went 1-3-0-0 head-to-head against the Rockets this season with Jones registering three assists. Read about Jones and his instrumental leadership within the Winterhawks dressing room here.
