Paull Funeral Home & Crematorium Three Stars of the Week (Mar. 3 – Mar. 10)

Every Monday we will be awarding three players who had a big week and giving them stars. We will be doing this week-to-week with points being collected throughout the season. The top three players will be recognized and presented an award during our final home game of the season.

The Swan Valley Stampeders snapped their 14-game losing streak Saturday night, defeating the Winnipeg Blues 4-2 at the Swan River Centennial Arena.

The Stampeders offence was led by 19-year-old forwards Landen Gulutzan, Will Brown and Callum Halls. That line that has been clicking as of late and also helped the Stampeders find a point against the Portage Terriers last week in a 6-5 overtime loss.

A tough year is nearing completion as the Stampeders only have two games left in their 25th season in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

This upcoming week, the Stampeders will host the Waywayseecappo Wolverines Tuesday, Mar. 12 at the Centennial Arena and will close out their 2023-24 season on the road in Niverville Saturday, Mar. 16.

Three star point system is as follows:

1st Star = 3 points

2nd Star = 2 points

3rd Star = 1 point

THREE STARS (Mar 3.  – Mar. 10)

3rd Star

Callum Halls returns to the three-star selections after a solid game in a Stampeders jersey. The 19-year-old, Brandon, MB, product collected a goal and an assist against the Winnipeg Blues last Saturday.  The 6’3” 205lbs forward sits second in team scoring with 30 points (10G, 20A).

2nd Star

Will Brown slips down one spot this week but, it wasn’t for a lack of effort. The 19-year-old Delano, MN, USA, product has quietly been putting up points since coming to the Valley but, not like last week. The 6’0” 185lbs forward collected three assists against the Blues, helping his team earn their first win in 14 tries. Brown now sits seventh in team scoring with 16 points (4G, 12A).

1st Star

Landen Gulutzan overtook the number one spot this week after a dominating performance Saturday against the Winnipeg Blues. The 19-year-old scored twice, adding two assists against the Blues Saturday night at the Centennial Arena. The 6’1” 180lbs forward sits third in team scoring with 28 points (13G, 15A).
