Nelson’s Dryden Hunt has been named the WHL’s player of the year.

Hunt is the first Moose Jaw Warriors player to be awarded the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy after a breakout season in which he led both the WHL and the CHL in goals with 58. He also finished second overall in WHL points with 116.

The 20-year-old led the Warriors with 36 multi-point games and scored six hat tricks, four of which came during a five-game span.

Hunt, who went undrafted in the NHL, was signed to an entry-level deal by the Florida Panthers in March.

Hunt is the first native Kootenaian to be named WHL player of the year since the league was founded in 1967, although Sam Reinhart won the award in 2014 while playing for the Kootenay Ice.
