New this season, in addition to the Manitoba Young Guns Series (Bantam Players), the Manitoba Junior Hockey League is going to highlight an MJHL Midget Prospect in our MJHL-In the System Series. We will look at players who are currently listed by an MJHL team and look to be a big part of that team’s future.
The players chosen are all exceptional kids both on-and-off the ice and all have bright futures in the game of hockey.

Paul Dyck-Head Coach/General Manager of the Steinbach Pistons on Thiessen:
“Matthew is an elite young goaltender with good size, athleticism and is extremely competitive. He exhibits strong leadership both on and off the ice.
