Everett defenseman Matt Pufahl was named the WHL Player of the Week on Monday, becoming the first Silvertip to earn the honor in nearly three years.
Pufahl, a 20-year-old defenseman from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, had four goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating as Everett went 3-0-1-0 during its four-game road trip through Alberta and northern British Columbia. He was acquired by the Tips via trade from the Saskatoon Blades during the offseason.
Before Pufahl, the Tips didn't have a WHL Player of the Week since winger Kellan Tochkin earned the honors for Nov. 15-21, 2010.
