Chiefs forward Riley Woods is the Western Hockey League player of the week, the league announced on Monday.

Woods recorded six points (3 goals and 3 assists) and a plus-three rating over two games as the Chiefs split their weekend trip to Vancouver Island against the Victoria Royals.

In Friday’s 7-5 loss, Woods scored twice and had an assist. He followed up on Saturday with a goal and two assists in the 7-2 Chiefs’ win. The two games were his ninth and 10th multi-point games of the season, and third and fourth of three points or more.

The 20-year-old from Regina, Saskatoon has 29 points (15G-14A) on the season, including five power-play goals and one game-winning goal in 19 games. He leads the Chiefs in scoring and is tied for eighth in league scoring. His 15 goals have him tied for fourth in the league.

The Chiefs play at Seattle on Tuesday and return home on Friday to take on Seattle again.
