Kraken Prospect Firkus Wins CHL Player Of The Year Honors

Although his Moose Jaw Warriors team ran out of steam in the semi-final of the 2024 Memorial Cup in Saginaw, Michigan, Seattle Kraken prospect Jagger Firkus is bringing home some serious hardware.

The Warriors lost 7-1 to the host Spirit, who moved on to play the OHL London Knights in the final, but Firkus picked up two very big consolation prizes. The 20-year old from Irma, Alberta, a Kraken 2nd-round Draft pick in 2022, won the David Branch Player of the Year Award for all of major junior hockey (CHL) and also finished as the top scorer among all skaters in the OHL, WHL, and QMJHL.

Firkus finished with 61 goals and 65 assists during the regular season and added 32 points in 20 playoff games in helping Moose Jaw conquer the Western Hockey League championship. It was quite an improvement for a player who dominated the circuit after finishing with a very respectable 88 and 80 points the two previous seasons.

The right-shot center already carries a trademark; his full red moustache, that matches the color of his curly locks. Kraken fans will easily recognize him at development camp in the summer and at full training camp in the fall.
