Last week, all eyes were on Noah Gregor, who promptly put up five points in a game last weekend against Calgary. This week, the spotlight stays in the Western Hockey League, but moves to the Kamloops Blazers' left wing, Rudolfs Balcers.
"Rudy brings a certain swagger on the ice," Blazers broadcaster Jon Keen said. "He's a talented offensive player and he plays with confidence knowing he can make a difference."
After a bit of a sluggish start to the season, Balcers finds himself leading the team in goals and points, and within the top 20 in both those categories across the WHL.
"He's found great chemistry with linemates Deven Sideroff (Ducks prospect) and Garrett Pilon (Capitals prospect)," Keen said. "The trio has been one of the most dangerous lines in the WHL this season."
