THREE STARS (Sept 23 – Sept 29)
20-year-old returning defenceman John Jebamani found a way to chip in offensively last week, collecting three assists over the course of two games. The Winnipeg, MB native would collect two power play assists against Virden Tuesday night and would pick up another power play assist against the Waywayseecappo Wolverines Friday night in front of the Swan River faithful.
Nathan Carl would once again find his scoring touch. The highly skilled 20-year-old forward from Sherwood Park, AB would pick up a power play goal against the Oil Capitals Tuesday September 24, and snapped home his league leading fifth of the year on home ice Friday against the Wolverines.
Frazer Dodd is this weeks 1st Star. The gritty 20-year-old forward from Hazelton, BC, would pick up four points in two games last week. Dodd scored twice, which included the overtime winner against Virden, and added two assists against Virden and Wayway. The youngster has fit in since being acquired earlier this summer from Merritt of the BCHL.
