The Western Hockey League announced today that Victoria Royals defenceman Travis Brown is the Denny’s WHL Player of the Week for the week ending January 4th, 2015.

Brown notched five points (1g-4a), while posting a plus-six rating in two games over the past week leading the Royals to two straight victories in that span.

On Friday, January 2nd, Brown had a four-point outing (1g-3a) and finished the game with a plus-four rating while claiming first star honours in an 8-1 triumph over the visiting Spokane Chiefs. On Saturday, January 3rd, Brown potted his 15th goal of the season and extended his point streak to six games as Victoria defeated the Chiefs 4-2.

Brown, a 20-year-old Winnipeg, MB product, currently sits tied with teammate Joe Hicketts for the scoring lead amongst WHL rearguards with 38 points and his 15 goals is also good for first in the league for defensemen.

Brown was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the fifth round, 149th overall in the 2012 NHL Draft.
