CALGARY, AB. – The Western Hockey League announced today that forward Linden Vey, of the Medicine Hat Tigers, has been named the HUSKY WHL Player of the Month for November.

The 19 year-old forward from Wakaw, SK led all WHL scorers collected 29 points through the month of November finding the net 13 times and accumulating 16 assists to go along with a remarkable +20 rating.  Vey went on a seven game goal scoring streak during November netting 10 goals during that span and 21 points.  Some highlights include Vey scoring his third career hat-trick against the Swift Current Broncos and his second five point effort of the season in a victory over the Brandon Wheat Kings.

Vey’s consistent play led the Medicine Hat Tigers to a 10-2-1-0 record through the month of November, including an eight game win streak.  The Tigers now find themselves third in the WHL Central Division with a 17-8-1-0 record for 35 points, within striking distance of the first place Kootenay Ice.  Vey’s efforts have also earned him a Three Star selection seven times, with five being 1st Stars.
