The Northern Pacific Hockey League announced today its players of the week for the period ending Sunday, January 27th.

The players of the week are voted on by league staff, coaches and general managers.


Offensive Player of the Week - Kai Wilkins, West Sound Warriors

The Warriors' Kai Wilkins surpassed the 100-point mark after getting 12 points over the three-game weekend. Wilkins scored four goals to go along eight assists in the split with Tri-Cities and Sunday's win at Vancouver. 

Friday night, the Wenatchee native scored once, and assisted on another, in the 7-5 win against the Outlaws. The 18 year-old forward assisted on five goals in Saturday's 7-5 loss to Tri-Cities. On Sunday Wilkins went over the 100-point mark, with his second consecutive five-point performance, scoring a trio of goals along with another pair of assists in the 9-3 win against Vancouver.

Overall, Wilkins has 42 goals and 59 assists for 101 points in 32 games this season.


Defensive Player of the Week - Scott Hansen, Bellingham Blazers

Bellingham's Scott Hansen is a young defenseman with a tremendous amount of upside potential. His 4-point weekend also gives him the nod as this week's Defensive Player of the Week.

On Friday, the 17-year-old Bellingham local assisted on a pair of goals before scoring one of his own in the Blazers 14-1 win at Vancouver.

Things were a little tighter on Saturday as the big defenseman was forced to deal with Vancouver's lethal combination of Jalen and Trey Twigg. Hansen scored an early first period goal and spent the rest of the game limiting the brothers' opportunities.

Overall, Hansen has 20-points on the season with 6 goals and 14 assists in 32 Blazers' games.
