THREE STARS (Sept 29 – Oct 6)
Callum Fortin had a big week with the Stampeders. The 2002 born forward from Souris, MB scored his first ever MJHL goal Monday night against the Dauphin Kings at the MJHL Old Dutch Player Showcase in Winnipeg. Fortin would score the insurance goal against the Neepawa Natives Friday night in front of the hometown crowd.
The fan favourite picks up this weeks second star award. Tommy Cardinal continues to add to his point total, scoring once while adding four helpers over the course of four games. The 20-year-old would chip in on Trevor Schroder’s game winner Monday night against the Dauphin Kings. Cardinal would score the game winning goal Tuesday night as the team met the Winnipeg Blues for the first time this season. He would later assist on the insurance goal by Josh Maucieri. The product of St. Etienne du Lauzon, QC would help set up Frazer Dodd’s game tying goal in the first period Sunday against the Blues.
Trevor Schroder is this weeks first star. He has continued to impress several Stampeder fans since joining the team out of camp. The 6’3” 213 lbs forward from Des Moines, IA, USA collected three goals and added an assist last week in a Stampeder uniform. Schroder scored his first MJHL goal against the Dauphin Kings Monday night at the Showcase. The goal would hold up to be the game winner. The big man would pick up a goal and an assist against Neepawa Friday, and score the game tying goal Sunday against the Winnipeg Blues in front of the Swan River faithful.
Honourable mentions this week go out to Mattias Dal Monte (1G, 2A), Frazer Dodd (2G,1A).
