Combs takes POW with pair of hat tricks

Wenatchee Wild forward Charlie Combs has been named the BCHL Player of the Week for the week ending October 30, the league announced Monday.

Combs scored back-t0-back hat tricks and was named 1st Star both nights as the Wild won a pair of games on home ice. The St. Louis, Mo. native assisted on his team’s first goal and went to score three of his own in a 5-3 victory over Merritt. He notched a natural hat trick, including the game-winner, the next night in a 4-1 win over Penticton.

The six-goal weekend moved Combs into first in the BCHL and he’s second in overall scoring with 29 points in 16 games.
