Portage Terriers’ Zimmer named Recycle Everywhere MJHL Player of the Week

Portage Terriers’ newly acquired Rylee Zimmer made quite the positive impression with his new team last week, earning him the Recycle Everywhere MJHL Player of the Week award.

Zimmer, who was acquired in a recent trade with Melville, scored six points (5-1) in his first three games as a Portage Terrier.  Acquired for his size (6-foot2, 200-pounds), Zimmer also showed he knows his way around the offensive zone, helping the Terriers extend their winning streak to five games.

Zimmer, who hails from Russell, originally broke into the MJHL with Waywayseecappo Wolverines before moving onto the Saskatchewan Junior League.

The runners up are 20 year old forward Matt Christian of the Winkler Flyers and 20 year old goaltender Hayden Dola of the Selkirk Steelers.
