January 2010


RBC Financial Player of the Month

Considered one of the young guns in the MJHL, Winnipeg South Blues’ forward Brendan O’Donnell has been rewarded for his outstanding offensive efforts by being named January’s RBC Player of the Month.

And to cap an outstanding month of hockey for the Winnipeg product, O’Donnell was also named the MJHL’s Husky Energy Rookie of the Month. The 17-year-old centre put together an impressive 20 points (10-10) over an 11-game span last month.

O’Donnell also leads all rookie scorers in the MJHL with 25 goals and 50 points. This has been a season to remember for O’Donnell, who recently represented Team West at the prestigious Prospects Game, in addition to suiting up for Team West at the World Junior A Challenge.

Runners-up for the RBC Player of the Month Award were forward Niko Grose, 20, of the Waywayseecappo Wolverines and forward Wes Pawluk, 20, of the Neepawa Natives.

Sher-wood Hockey Defenceman of the Month
Despite sitting last in the Sher-Wood Division, Waywayseecappo Wolverines have demonstrated their never-say-die attitude, reflected in back-to-back wins against Selkirk Steelers and a 4-1 victory over division leaders Dauphin Kings. Wayway defenceman Stephane Robidoux was one of the pillars for Wolverines during their victories.

Not only did he display solid play along the blueline, but the native of Haywood, Mb., contributed offensively with 15 points (2-13) over 13 games last month.

Runners up for the award were Peter Stoykewych, 17, of the Winnipeg South Blues and Dale Warkentin, 19, of the OCN Blizzard.

GDI Prairies Goaltender of the Month
Winnipeg Saints’ management made it a priority at the trade deadline to acquire a seasoned, successful goaltender - enter Justin Leclerc, whose outstanding play last month has earned him goaltender of the month honours.

Prior to joining the Saints, Leclerc has guarded the nets for the Kamloops Blazers and Lethbridge Hurricanes for the past five years, compiling 82 wins and a 3.48 goals against average. During his three years in Kamloops he was the number one netminder, playing more 7,400 minutes.

Prior to the 2007-08 season, he was dealt from Lethbridge to Kamloops for a second round draft pick. Saints acquired the veteran netminder from Melville Millionaires.

In January Leclerc posted a 6-1 record, enroute to a 2.25 GAA and .931 save per centage. He also recorded a 4-0 shutout over the MJHL league leading Dauphin Kings.

Runners up for goalie of the month were Jason Kasdorf, 17, of the Portage Terriers and Matt Krahn, 18, of the Neepawa Natives.

 

December


RBC Financial Player of the Month

Considered one of the most consistent players in the MJHL, Selkirk Steelers’ veteran forward Josh Schappert has been rewarded for his efforts by being named December’s RBC Player of the Month.

Schappert’s steady play is one of the reasons why the Steelers are riding a four-game winning steak, helping the club stay within points of first place in the tight Addison Division. The 20-year-old Winnipeg native has also put together an impressive 12-game point streak, registering 10 goals and 26 points over that span.

Over a 10-game span in December, Schappert recorded 22 points (8-14).

Sher-wood Hockey Defenceman of the Month
One of the biggest trades last season involved Lucas Alexiuk, who moved from Winkler Flyers to Selkirk Steelers. And the play of the steady defenceman continues to pay off this season.

Alexiuk’s strong play in December has been recognized by him being named the Sher-Wood Defenceman of the Month. In 10 games last month, the Winnipeg product produced offensively with 12 points (4-8).

Runners up for the award were Troy Kliever, 19, of the Winkler Flyers and Steven Shamanski, 20 of the Dauphin Kings.

GDI Prairies Goaltender of the Month
One only has to look at the play of goaltender Matt Krahn to understand why Neepawa Natives are in contention for a playoff spot in the MJHL. Last month the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder recorded a 5-4 record and 2.77 GAA in 607 minutes played. His save percentage was a very respectable .908.

Natives, who sit fifth in the Sher-Wood Division, have 41 points and are presently tied with Winnipeg South Blues, who are fourth in the Addison Division. A playoff crossover could take place if the Natives finish with more points than the fourth-place finisher in the Addison.

Runners up for goalie of the month were Jordan Washburn, 19, of the Portage Terriers and Joe Caligiuri, 20, of the Dauphin Kings.

Husky Energy Rookie of the Month
December was a busy month for Winnipeg South Blues’ rookie Brendan O'Donnell. In addition to being named the Potters Distillers Player of the Week, O’Donnell also suited up for Team West at Prospects Games staged in Winkler.
