Oh Vey... Look who won player of the month

CALGARY, AB. – The Western Hockey League announced today that forward Linden Vey, of the Medicine Hat Tigers, has been named the HUSKY WHL Player of the Month for January.

The 18-year-old forward from Wakaw, Saskatchewan, notched 25 points through the month of January finding the net eight times and accumulating 17 assists to go along with a +4 rating. Vey led all WHL players in scoring through January, picking up points in 13 of his 15 games played, six of which were multi-point nights, including two five-point games, elevating him to the Tigers’ scoring lead this season.

Vey’s 25 points in January also helped move him to a 13th ranking among WHL scorers with 63 points (21 goals, 42 assists) in 56 games played. His consistent play led the Tigers’ to a 9-5-0-1 record on the month, which included 11 road games, and currently sit 2nd in the WHL Eastern Conference with a 32-16-3-5 record for 72 points, just two points back of the first place Saskatoon Blades. Vey’s efforts also earned him a Three Star selection in three games, with two being 1st Stars.

Vey is playing his third full season in Medicine Hat after the Tigers selected him in the 2nd round (42nd overall) of the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft. He was recently selected in the 4th round (96th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings.

His accomplishments make Linden Vey a deserving choice as the HUSKY WHL Player of the Month for January.

I was just noticing his strong numbers a couple of days ago. This just keeps getting better and better. I look forward to seeing him next camp.
