Moose Jaw resident Jaxsen Wiebe played a significant role in the championship season as a right-winger for the Edmonton Oil Kings.
Wiebe scored ten goals and 26 assists in the 2021-2022 regular season and scored a hat trick in the team's second game of the Memorial Cup.
He played two years with the Red Deer Rebels before being traded to Edmonton and says he plans to stay with the Oil Kings for his final year in the WHL.
The Memorial Cup was hosted in St. Johns, New Brunswick, and Wiebe says it was an unforgettable experience.
"Very few get to experience something like that," says Wiebe. "So the first game we lost to Shawinigan and our second game we won in overtime, and then it was a do or die against Hamilton in our third game, and unfortunately, we didn't get the win, but it was still cool."
The Oil Kings played the Saint John Sea Dogs in game two, and Wiebe helped secure the win by scoring a hat trick, including the overtime winner.
"That definitely was one of the highlights of my career, and I will probably never forget it."
He says he's excited about the upcoming season. "This last year was super incredible with the group that we had and everything we did."
Wiebe sat down with Discover Moose Jaw's Hayley Shirkey to talk about the season, the memorable hat trick and the teams' playoff beards.
