Calgary, AB - The Western Hockey League today announced the WHL Eastern Conference finalist for the 2012-13 WHL Player of the Year. The two finalists for WHL Player of the Year are determined through voting by General Managers, coaches, broadcast and media representatives of all WHL Member Clubs.

In the WHL's Eastern Conference, which includes the East and Central Divisions, the Player of the Year Nominee is forward Adam Lowry of the Swift Current Broncos.

Lowry enjoyed a strong season for the Swift Current Broncos, appearing in all 72 games while scoring a team-leading 45 goals and 43 assists for 88 points to go with a +18 rating and 102 penalty minutes. Lowry’s considerable contributions to the Broncos helped the Club make the WHL playoffs for the first time since the 2009-10 season.

Lowry, a Calgary, AB, finished sixth among all WHL players in goals and finished 12th in WHL scoring with 88 points. In addition, Lowry finished tied for eighth among all WHL players with 14 power play goals and tied for second with six shorthanded goals. His eight game-winning goals also tied him for second among WHL players in that category. Lowry displayed remarkable consistency throughout the 2012-13 WHL season, going more than two games without recording a point only three times all season while enjoying a season-best 21-game point streak and an eight-game goal streak. His efforts saw him named the Husky WHL Player of the Month for December. Lowry’s importance to the Broncos during the 2012-13 season cannot be understated as he had a hand in nearly 48% of his team’s entire offensive output.

Chosen by the Broncos in the 4th round, 78th overall, of the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft, Lowry has played four seasons in the WHL, scoring 90 goals and 204 points in 235 regular-season games. Lowry was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the 3rd round, 67th overall, in the 2011 NHL Draft.

In the WHL's Western Conference, which includes the B.C. and U.S. Divisions, the Player of the Year Nominee is forward Justin Feser of the Tri-City Americans.

Feser, a Red Deer, AB, native, enjoyed an outstanding season for the Americans, leading them to their seventh consecutive season with 40 or more victories. In his 20-year-old campaign, Feser scored 44 goals and 62 assists for 106 points along with a +20 rating while appearing in all 72 games for the Americans.

Feser lead the Americans in scoring by a wide margin this season, netting 40 more points than the team’s second-highest scorer, and placed him fourth among all WHL players in points. His 44 goals put him seventh among all WHL players while his 62 assists also placed him seventh in that category. In addition, Feser netted 13 power play goals and four shorthanded goals, and finished tied for second among WHL players with eight game-winning goals. The 5’9”, 190-lb forward displayed great consistency during the 2012-13 season, being held off the score sheet for two or more consecutive games just five times. Twice named the Denny’s WHL Player of the Week, Feser was also named the Husky WHL Player of the Month for February after collecting 24 points in just 11 games.

Feser has played five seasons in the WHL, all with the Americans, recording 155 goals and 198 assists for 353 points in 351 regular-season games. He has also proven to be the most durable player in WHL history, setting the WHL record for consecutive games played at 321. Feser was selected by the Americans in the ninth round, 194th overall, in the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft.
