Calgary - October 15, 2013 - The Western Hockey League announced today that Everett Silvertips’ defenceman Matt Pufahl is the Denny’s WHL Player of the Week for the week ending October 13, 2013.

Pufahl recorded six points on four goals and two assists along with a +5 rating over four games in the last week, helping lead the Silvertips to a 3-0-1-0 record on the road in that span.

On Tuesday, October 8th, Pufahl scored both goals and was named the game’s 1st Star in a 2-1 victory over his former Club, the Red Deer Rebels, in Red Deer, AB.

On Wednesday, October 9th, Pufahl enjoyed his second straight two-goal outing, including netting the game-winner, in a 4-2 victory over the Oil Kings in Edmonton, AB.
