PAULL FUNERAL HOME 3 STARS OF THE WEEK!!
The highs and lows of junior hockey are apparent with the Stampeders in the early stages of November. After taking 7 of 8 points the previous week, Swan took a step backwards last week only picking up 2 out of 6 points on a 3 game home stand.
The club hosted the OCN Blizzard Wednesday November 6, dropping a close game 2-1. The team let the game slip through their hands with what many are calling a controversial penalty very late in the game that allowed the Blizzard to score and walk away with two points.
Swan tried to regroup against Selkirk Saturday November 9, but a parade to the penalty box, and turnovers lead to a 7-3 loss to the Steelers.
The Stamps’ would regroup in an afternoon game Sunday against the same Selkirk Steelers, this time coming away with a 3-1 win in front of an electric Swan River crowd.
The ups and downs of junior hockey were on full display the last two weeks, but one thing is for sure, the team can play hockey when they put their minds to it. The team has picked up 9 points out of their last 7 games. The team currently sits with a record of 12-6-2.

THREE STARS (Nov 4 – Nov 11)
“The Captain” takes over this weeks third star honours. The 20-year-old has been quietly putting up points (5G-6A) this year in a Stampeders jersey. He is on pace for a career year so far, all while leading his team both on and off ice. The 6’3” 201 lbs native of Lac La Biche, AB scored the insurance marker Sunday against the Selkirk Steelers and would also pick up and assist on the game winner earlier by Mattias Dal Monte.
Mattias Dal Monte is this weeks second star. After scoring 4 goals and picking up 4 assists the week prior, the offensively gifted defenceman would collect an assist on Trevor Schroeder’s power play goal Saturday. He then scored the game winner early in the third period Sunday against the Selkirk Steelers. The 6’3” 185 lbs native of Nanaimo, BC has collected 8 goals, 11 assists in 20 games.
The “Big Man” had another “Big” week. Trevor Schroder grabs this weeks 1st star award, collecting 2 goals in 3 games. The 6’3” 216 lbs forward from Des Moines, IA, USA would score back-to-back goals Friday night at home in a 7-3 loss to the Selkirk Steelers.
Honourable mentions this week go out to Nathan Carl (1G,1A), Luke Beerman, John Jebamani, Lane Kirk, Carter Cockburn, and Jackson Betcher who all picked up 1 assist each.
The Stamps’ will return to action later this week, travelling to southern Manitoba for a 3-in-3. The team will play back-to-back games in Winkler Friday November 15 and Saturday November 16, and will play the Portage Terriers Sunday November 16 on their way back home.
