Brayden Tracey of the Moose Jaw Warriors keep lighting the lamp and he is turning heads across the country. As a result, the rookie forward earned yet another honour this week.

Tracey was previously named the WHL's Player of the Week. He has now been named the Canadian Hockey League's Player of the Week for the regular season week ending February 24. 

The rookie forward had 11 points (6G-5A) in four games for the Warriors, including a plus-minus rating of plus-5.
Tracey recorded four-consecutive multi-point games last week as the Warriors recorded three wins in four appearances to improve to a 34-16-6-2 record, good for third place in the WHL’s East Division. His week began Monday with a three-point night, including two power-play tallies as the Warriors fell just short of a comeback in a 4-3 loss to the top-seeded Prince Albert Raiders. The 2019 NHL Draft hopeful then followed up that performance four nights later with another two-goal effort in a 4-2 win against the Swift Current Broncos in which he was recognized as the game’s third star. On Saturday, Tracey was named second star after picking up another three points, including one goal and two assists, in a 5-2 victory over the Regina Pats. Tracey then closed out the weekend with another three points as he recorded one goal and two assists in Sunday’s 5-1 win over the Kootenay ICE.
A 17-year-old from Calgary, Alta., the 6-foot-0, 174-pound Tracey is starring in his first full season with the Warriors after appearing in five games plus two playoff contests a year ago. In 58 games with Moose Jaw this season, the 21st-overall selection from the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft has tallied 73 points (31G-42A), good for first among CHL rookies and third in team scoring behind fellow forwards Tristin Langan (45-51-96) and Justin Almeida (25-62-87).

He is listed 73rd among North American skaters for the 2019 NHL Draft in NHL Central Scouting’s Midterm Rankings.
