Great news for the Seattle Kraken fanbase as their top prospect, Jagger Firkus, has etched his name in history by leading the Moose Jaw Warriors to their first-ever WHL championship.

«It means a lot that we finished the job this year,» Firkus said. «How happy I am, how happy I am for the city of Moose Jaw, how happy I am for the guys. I mean, we've grown up together. A lot of us have been together since we were 15 years old. It just means the world to all of us and especially the city of Moose Jaw.»

The Warriors made light work of the Portland Winterhawks, sweeping them in a dominant 4-0 series victory. Firkus, who was recently named the WHL Player of the Year, put forth a dominant performance throughout the season and playoffs for the Warriors. His stellar play has not gone unnoticed by Kraken fans, who eagerly await his arrival in the NHL.

The Warriors' triumph sets the stage for their participation in the prestigious Memorial Cup tournament, where they will open against the Saginaw Spirit. With Firkus leading the charge, the Warriors will be aiming to cap off their remarkable season by capturing their first Memorial Cup title.

Firkus' exploits have undoubtedly made the Kraken faithful proud, as their prized prospect continues to showcase his immense talent and leadership on the biggest stage. As the Warriors embark on their quest for Memorial Cup glory, all eyes will be on Firkus to continue his dominant form and further solidify his status as one of the game's brightest young stars.
