No. 3 – Jett Woo (RD) (Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL)
Jett Woo is still doing Jett Woo things. The warriors played four times in the last week and Woo did not disappoint. Finishing the stretch with two goals and two assists, he still has the hot hand on his team.
I know these can be very subjective, but Woo is very good at being selected as one of the stars of the night. He was the first star in Kelowna and picked up the third star when the Warriors blanked the Royals.
It’s not just his home team recognizing what he’s doing out there, but other cities as well. I’m not sure if it means anything, but I find it interesting. After the offensive flex, Woo has 38 points in 39 games. That’s good for seventh among all WHL defenders and I have to keep reminding myself to be careful.
This is how I got drawn into the Kole Lind trap. At the very least, Woo would have to return to Moose Jaw next season (barring a trade), so at least the shine won’t be grinded down in the AHL just yet. Although, if there are still games to play in Utica when the Warriors conclude their season, I do wonder how he would look with a much faster and more physical change of pace.
Woo is tied with teammate Josh Brook for the fourth most goals from WHL defencemen (nine). Only one of those goals have come with the man advantage. That makes sense since Brook is often the trigger man and Woo is usually distributing the puck. All in all, it’s another good week for Woo, which has become a regular thing for the last couple of months.
