Toronto, ON The Canadian Hockey League today announced that forward Sven Bartschi is the CHL Player of the Week after scoring four goals and one assist for five points in three playoff games for the week ending May 6.
Bartschi opened the WHL Championship Series with a goal in Game 1 last Thursday night despite a 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings. He followed that up with a pair of first star performances including Friday night in Game 2 where he scored two goals in a 5-1 win, and on Sunday where he scored once and added an assist as part of the 4-3 victory which gave the Winterhawks a 2-1 series lead. The series is now tied 2-2 with Game 5 scheduled for Thursday night in Edmonton.
Bartschi, a 19-year-old from Langenthal, Switzerland, is playing in his second full WHL season with the Winterhawks. Selected 13th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Bartschi is currently second in WHL playoff scoring with 32 points including 13 goals and 19 assists in 19 games played.
Also considered for the award this week was Andrew Agozzino of the Niagara IceDogs who scored four goals in the opening two games of the OHL Championship Series against the London Knights. In the QMJHL, Tomas Jurco of the Saint John Sea Dogs scored two goals and one assist for three points in the first two games of the QMJHL Finals against the Rimouski Oceanic.

this means he can officially join Koules, Samuelsson, Musil and others before them in the entitled anklebiters club exclusively for the yuppy offspring of athletes.

We get another elite player to watch in the Dub. Everett gets a bunch of players and Portland gets a top prospect. Everyone wins here.

If Everett refused to deal him they would get nothing in return and a wasted draft pick, instead they parlay it into four players.

In a couple years it could be Everett attracting players like this, its not like Portland was a destination hockey market 3 or 4 years ago...

This kid was everetts first round pick...a player expected to potentially be a franchise player. Do you think they are better without him? Because simply put, if they arent(which they probably arent), thats the definition of not winning, especially considering the circumstances.

While its nice(short term) being on one side of that bridge, it certainly isnt as nice on the other end(not necessarily short term), no matter how the picture is re-painted(aka this 'he said thanks but no thanks politely' nonsense). Hockey has enough problems without these punks thinking any old team isnt good enough, and then people encouraging this pattern of thought to boot. This **** directly conflicts with the junior hockey cycle(often at the cost of another team forced to go around another time), which, dramatics aside, is almost like screwing with nature.
