Chase Brakel stepped into the hero role recently, scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over OCN Blizzard, helping the Portage Terriers win the MJHL championship. Those heroics earned Brakel this week’s Recycle Everywhere MJHL Player of the Week.
Brakel, who hails from Winnipeg, finished the playoffs with an impressive total of 15 points (7-8) in 18 games. After recently winning their third consecutive MJHL championship, the Terriers are now preparing for the upcoming Western Canada Cup scheduled for Penticton, BC. Two teams from the WCC will then advance to the RBC Cup next month.
The runners up are 20 year old defenceman Brady Keeper of the OCN Blizzard and 18 year old goaltender Kurtis Chapman of the Portage Terriers.
