Daily Dose of the Dub: Dawson Holt and David Tendeck win Weekly Awards, Belarus wraps up U-18 Preliminary Round

Giants’ Dawson Holt and David Tendeck take home weekly awards

The Vancouver Giants have been quite impressive in their Western Conference Final series against the Spokane Chiefs and the WHL has taken notice of two key players. Forward Dawson Holt had four points this past week (two goals, two assists) to bring his playoff total to 11. He’s the second Giant to take home this award this year, as defenseman Bowen Byram has won it twice.

Throughout most of the year, the Giants have been running with a 1A/1B situation with Arizona Coyotes prospect David Tendeck and 2019 NHL Draft eligible prospect Trent Miner splitting time in between the pipes. However, Tendeck has started both games versus Spokane and three straight games dating back to the series against Victoria. In two games this week, Tendeck sported a 2-0-0-0 record, a 1.50 Goals-Against-Average and made 54 saves on 57 shots for a .947 save percentage. The aforementioned Miner has won this award twice this year, but this is Tendeck’s first win of the year. Tendeck will be this week’s WHL nominee for the CHL goalie of the week. Check back tomorrow to see if it’s a repeat win for the WHL following Edmonton Oil Kings goaltender Dylan Myskiw’s win last week.

The tournament features a number of WHL prospects including Medicine Hat’s Garin Bjorklund (Calgary Buffaloes), Moose Jaw’s Cade Hayes (Tisdale Trojans), Red Deer’s Jayden Grubbe (Calgary Buffaloes) Jeremy Hancock (Tisdale Trojans) and Trey Patterson (Calgary Buffaloes) and Saskatoon’s Braden Plaschewsky (Calgary Buffaloes) and Jayden Wiens (Tisdale Trojans)

Versteeg signs one-year deal with Rockford

The Rockford Ice Hogs have signed WHL alumni Kris Versteeg (62 G, 105 A in 264 GP with Kamloops, Lethbridge, and Red Deer) to a one-year AHL contract. Versteeg missed a lot of time last year due to a battle with shingles but did suit up for Avangard Omsk of the KHL (3 G, 2 A in 11 GP) and the Växjö Lakers of the SHL (4 G, 7 A in 12 GP).
