The Western Hockey League’s three top players for November include Surrey-raised goaltender Harrison Meneghin, Vancouver Giants rookie Samuel Honzek and Regina Pats top prospect Connor Bedard.

Thursday (Dec. 1), Meneghin was named WHL Goaltender of the Month for his shot-stopping work for Lethbridge Hurricanes.

Raised in South Surrey, the 18-year-old Meneghin led all WHL goaltenders with seven wins in November, earning seven wins and .936 save percentage.

The Delta Hockey Academy grad, nicknamed “Harry,” made 30 or more saves in five of his eight appearances in November, including a 37-save performance Nov. 25 in Brandon.

Meneghin limited opponents to two goals or fewer on five occasions this past month, and sits second among rookie WHL netminders with 10 wins.


Giants forward Honzek is November’s WHL Rookie of the Month after scoring 20 points in the month.

A native of Trencin, Slovakia, he recorded at least a point in all but one of his 10 games played in November, collecting four points Nov. 12 at Prince George and adding a trio of three-point efforts Nov. 1 at Medicine Hat, Nov. 13 against the Cougars and Nov. 30 versus Moose Jaw.

An ‘A’ rated prospect for the 2023 NHL Draft, Honzek is the only WHL rookie to currently lead his team in scoring.


Fresh from filling Langley Events Centre for a game against the Giants on Nov. 25, Bedard is the McSweeney’s WHL Player of the Month.

The North Vancouver-raised forward, 17, earned the honour for the second straight month, for leading all WHL skaters with 28 points (11G-17A) in November. He enters December on a 25-game point streak.

Bedard posted nine multi-point games in November, including a five-point effort Nov. 9 against Edmonton Oil Kings.

Selected by the Pats with the first-overall pick in the 2020 WHL Draft, Bedard has amassed 185 points (87G-98A) over 103 regular-season games in the league.
