Western Hockey League

 

Portland Winterhawks forward Oliver Bjorkstrand earned the WHL Player of the Month award for February after he won for January as well. He registered 13 goals and 21 points in just nine games to receive the honor. Bjorkstrand has found the back of the net 18 times during an 11-game goal streak. The third-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2013 ranks second in the WHL with 91 points in 49 contests. 18-year-old rookie Rylan Toth was the WHL Goaltender of the Month. His 4-3-0-1 record doesn't tell the whole story, as he held the opposition to two goals or less in five appearances. He posted a 2.46 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage. Jansen Harkins of the Prince George Cougars picked up one goal and seven points in two games to earn the WHL Player of the Week distinction. He had a four-point night against Seattle to give his club a 5-4 overtime win last Friday. Harkins is eligible for the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Vancouver Canucks prospect Jake Virtanen notched three goals and four helpers in four matches last week. He produced a goal and an assist in three of those outings. Virtanen has 48 points in 41 games this season for the Calgary Hitmen.

 

Ontario Hockey League

 

Anthony DeAngelo was the CHL and OHL Player of the Week after he amassed four goals and eight points in only two appearances. He extended his point to 19 straight games. DeAngelo leads the league in scoring among defensemen with 77 points in 49 games. He was chosen with the 19th overall pick in the 2014 draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Mitchell Marner of the London Knights piled up 11 points, including eight assists, in four games. The OHL point leader, with 199 points in 56 games, could be a top-5 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. Connor McDavid enjoyed an amazing week as well with five goals and five assists in three contests.  The probable top pick in the upcoming draft was also the Player of the Month for February after he amassed 13 goals and 20 assists in 12 games.  McDavid had an outstanding 24-game point streak.  

 

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

 

2015 NHL Entry Draft prospect Evgeny Svechnikov potted four goals and eight points in four games en route to being named the first star of the week. He picked up two points in each outing. The 18-year-old forward has 27 goals and 66 points in 50 contests. St. Louis Blues draft pick Samuel Blais was the second star after he produced two goals and six points in two games. He had five points in 7-4 victory against Sherbrooke. The sixth-round selection in 2014 has 29 goals and 68 points in 54 matches this season for Victoriaville. Gatineau netminder Nicolas Lachance was the third star of the QMJHL and the CHL Goaltender of the Week after he posted a 0.52 goals-against average and a .982 save percentage in a pair of victories. He turned aside 54 of the 55 shots he faced.
