Brayden Tracey finished off December with a bang by scoring a natural hat trick on New Year's Eve.

The Moose Jaw Warriors forward was named WHL Rookie of the Month for December, his second straight month winning the honour.

Tracey posted five goals and 14 points in 11 games during the month. He also finished the month riding a five-game point streak with multiple points in four of those five games.

The 17-year-old Calgary product currently leads all WHL rookies with 38 points in 34 games. He ranks second in goals with 14.

Tracey and the Warriors are back on the ice on Friday night when they take on the East Division-leading Raiders in Prince Albert.

Portland Winterhawks forward Joachim Blichfeld and Everett Silvertips goalie Dustin Wolf picked up the WHL Player and Goaltender of the Month awards, respectively, for December.

Blichfeld, along with Moose Jaw's Reece Newkirk, and the Winterhawks will be at Mosaic Place on Saturday night.

Warriors Earn Honourable Mention

The Warriors moved back into an honourable mention slot on the first CHL Top-10 of 2019.

Moose Jaw returned from the Christmas break and picked up points in all four games during a four-in-five stretch to open their second-half schedule.

The Warriors currently sport the fourth-best winning percentage (0.676) in the Western Hockey League with a 20-8-5-1 through 34 games this season.

The Raiders continue to lead the pack as they remained number-one in the country, while Everett comes in at fifth and the Vancouver Giants are tenth.
