Steinbach Pistons’ standout goaltender Nick Deery has been named the Recycle Everywhere MJHL Player of the Week, ending April 5.
Deery, 20, was unbeatable in the net, posting a pair of shutout victories in leading the Pistons past Winnipeg Blues. Pistons now advance to the MJHL final against Portage Terriers ─ a best-of-seven series which opens Wednesday in Portage.
Deery, who hails from La Crosse, Wis., is hoping to earn the Pistons their second Turnbull Trophy in the last three years. After graduating the Pistons, Deery has committed to University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs.
The runners up are 20 year old forward Dustin Loeppky of the Steinbach Pistons and 19 year old forward Brad Bowles of the Portage Terriers.
