Published May 12, 2024 at 5:58 PM

Seattle Kraken prospect Jagger Firkus continues to dazzle in the Western Hockey League (WHL) playoffs, leading the Moose Jaw Warriors to a dominant 2-0 series lead over the Portland Winterhawks in the WHL Finals.

In Game 2, played in Portland, the 19-year-old center put on a show, scoring twice to propel the Warriors to a convincing 5-1 victory over the host team. Firkus' explosive scoring and playmaking abilities have been on full display throughout the season, but he seems to have found an extra gear in the playoffs, much to the delight of Kraken fans eagerly awaiting his arrival in the NHL.

Firkus, who was drafted by the Kraken in the second round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, has been a force to be reckoned with in the WHL playoffs. His impressive performance in Game 2 adds to his already impressive stat line, which includes 37 goals and 84 points in the regular season.

As the Warriors head back to Moose Jaw with a 2-0 series lead, all eyes will be on Firkus and his teammates as they look to capture the WHL championship and add another accolade to their impressive resumes.
