Koehn Ziemmer of the Prince George Cougars is the WHL Player of the Week.
Ziemmer, who just signed a 3-year entry-level contract with the LA Kings, tallied nine points (4G-5A) and a plus-3 rating in four games.
“It’s a pretty surreal feeling,” Ziemmer said. “You play hockey your whole life dreaming of playing in the NHL one day, and this is one step closer for me. To sign on the dotted line is pretty cool.”
Ziemmer, who turns 19 next month, was selected in the third round, 78th overall by LA in the 2023 NHL Draft.
The 6’1, 203-pound Ziemmer sits 16th in WHL scoring with 28 points (9G-19A) in 18 games.
Have a week, Ziems! 🔥
With nine points in four games, Koehn Ziemmer has been named @TheWHL‘s Player of the Week!
