April 30 2014 ISN – Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Winnipeg Jets prospect
Nic Petan is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending April 27 after
scoring three goals and four assists for seven points in three games.

Petan helped lead the Winterhawks to their fourth straight WHL Western Conference
Championship with a five-game series win over the Kelowna Rockets. With the series
tied 1-1, Petan recorded a pair of assists in a 4-3 overtime win over the Rockets in
Game 3 last Tuesday night. In Game 4 on Wednesday, Petan unloaded for three
power-play goals including the game-winner and earned first star honours in the 5-1
victory on home ice. Petan picked up another two assists on Friday night as the
Winterhawks skated to a 7-3 victory in the Game 5 series finale. The Winterhawks
will now face the Eastern Conference Champion Edmonton Oil Kings for the third
straight season competing for the Ed Chynoweth Cup beginning on Saturday night.

Petan, a 19-year-old from Delta, BC, is playing in his third full WHL season with
the Winterhawks. Selected by the Jets in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft,
Petan has 21 points in 14 playoff games this season after recording 113 points in 63
