“We’re very excited at the strides Jett has made this season with Moose Jaw,” said Benning. “He plays the game with good intensity and attention to detail at both ends of the ice. Jett is an important part of our future and we look forward to his continued development.”
Woo, 18, currently ranks fifth on the Moose Jaw Warriors in scoring with a career-high 62 points (12-50-62) in 61 games played. His 1.02 points per game rate also ranks fifth among WHL blueliners. The 6-0, 203-pound defenceman has tallied three assists in a game on three separate occasions, most recently on March 9th versus Regina.
In 177 career WHL games over parts of four seasons, all with Moose Jaw, Woo has collected 110 points (26-84-110). He also has seven points (2-5-7) in 26 career WHL Playoff games.
A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Woo was originally selected by Vancouver in the second round, 37th overall, at the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
