The product of Lethbridge, Alta. started his week with a two-point effort Tuesday, February 15, scoring the overtime winner in a 3-2 Wheat Kings victory over the Swift Current Broncos.

Greig added an assist, also winning 17 of 23 faceoffs in Brandon's 4-1 victory at Medicine Hat Wednesday, February 16.
