CALGARY, AB. – The Western Hockey League announced today that forward Dustin Sylvester, of the Kootenay Ice, has been named the HUSKY WHL Player of the Month for November.

The 19-year-old native of Kelowna, British Columbia, recorded 20 points through November, netting nine goals and 11 assists all while maintaining an outstanding plus minus rating of +12. Sylvester led all WHL players in the points per game category through November averaging 2.00 Pt/G and is currently on a nine game point streak which includes two shorthanded goals.
