For period ending April 13

CANALTA HOTELS SJHL PLAYER OF THE WEEK:  Brett Boehm, Yorkton Terriers
1994 F Brett Boehm (Martensville SK) wins this award for the second straight week by virtue of his game one heroics in the Canalta Cup finals.  Boehm scored the equalizing goal with forty seconds remaining in the third period on Friday night and then set up the game winner in overtime to send Yorkton to a 1-0 series lead, an advantage they extended to 2-0 with another overtime win on Saturday.

SASKTEL SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK:  Kale Thomson, Yorkton Terriers
1993 G Kale Thomson (Yorkton SK) has been overshadowed, to some degree, in these playoffs but he has continued to elevate his game the deeper we go in the SJHL playoffs.  While he didn't face the same number of shots as his counterpart from Melville, Thomson was every bit as good and made a number of extremely tough saves.  Furthermore, he allowed just one goal in each of the first two games, which were both won in overtime by the Terriers.

SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK:  Devon McMullen, Yorkton Terriers
1993 D Devon McMullen (Moosomin SK) doesn't garner a lot of attention because of the Norrish twins, but he is an incredibly gifted blueliner who has captained the Terriers to within two games of their second straight championship.  The gritty McMullen scored the overtime winner on Saturday night to lift Yorkton into a 2-0 series lead.

SJHL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK:  Jordan Ross, Yorkton Terriers
1996 F Jordan Ross (Kronau SK) got off to a hot start early in the season and it looked like the underaged junior was going to take the league by storm.  He endured a few growing pains along the way, but he's carved out a niche again in the playoffs and he picked up a key first goal in game two of the Canalta Cup finals in helping the Terriers, eventually, pull off a 2-1 win in double overtime to head home for game three up 2-games-to-none.

For period ending April 6

CANALTA HOTELS SJHL PLAYER OF THE WEEK:  Brett Boehm, Yorkton Terriers

SASKTEL SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK:  Richard Palmer, Melville Millionaires
1995 G Richard Palmer (Okotoks AB) made his first start in over two months on Friday night in North Battleford and stopped all 35 shots he faced in leading the Mils to a 1-0 victory over the Stars and a 4-games-to-1 series win.  Palmer, who was used sparingly in the regular season, had given up three or more goals in each of his seven previous starts, however he put up a shutout when pressed into duty due to an illness to regular starter Isaiah Plett.

SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK:  Chase Norrish, Yorkton Terriers
1993 D Chase Norrish (Strongfield SK) simply continues to dazzle and impress as he winds down his junior career.  Norrish had three goals and two assists in the final three games against Humboldt, including the series winner at 1:53 of overtime in game five.  With 7-goals and 7-assists in 10-games during these playoffs, he leads the postseason scoring race.

SJHL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK:  Gray Marr, Humboldt Broncos
1995 F Gray Marr (Twin Butte AB) may not have been able to propel the Broncos into the league finals, but a star has definitely been born.  Marr scored a goal and two assists in game three of the Yorkton series and then put up a goal and an assist in game four.  He set up his team's only goal in game five and finishes the postseason with 5-goals and 6-assists in 11-games after a regular season in which he scored 9-goals and 11-assists in 56-games.

SASKTEL SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK:  Kale Thomson, Yorkton Terriers
1993 G Kale Thomson (Yorkton SK) played two games last week, but he played eleven periods and was a big part of the Terriers earning a split in their series with Humboldt.  Thomson lost a 6-5 triple overtime decision on home ice in game one, but made 29-of-30 saves over the final two overtimes to give his team a chance.  Then, on Sunday he helped the Terriers to a 3-2 double overtime victory and he finishes the week with 107-saves on 115-shots.

SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK:  Alec Brandrup, Melville Millionaires
1993 D Alec Brandrup (Rochester MN) helped the Millionaires in North Battleford on Friday night by assisting on his team’s first goal in what was a 4-1 win.  Brandrup’s powerplay point shot was deflected in front of the net.  He sealed the game on Friday with an empty netter.  Saturday, he scored the game winner with 5:28 remaining in regulation as the Mils lead the series 2-0.

SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK:  Chase Norrish, Yorkton Terriers
1993 D Chase Norrish (Strongfield SK) proved to be too much for the Notre Dame Hounds to contain last week as he scored a hat trick in a pivotal game three that turned the tide of the series.  He also had three assists in the series finale on Friday as the Terriers won the best of seven 4-games-to-1.  Norrish finished the week and the series with 3-goals and 4-assists.

SJHL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK:  Jordan Ross, Yorkton Terriers

SASKTEL SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK:  Matt Gibney, Estevan Bruins
1993 G Matt Gibney (Regina SK) wins this award for the second straight week and it's safe to say if his name isn't here either week, the Bruins are no longer playing.  In five games played last week, he won three and posted an even 2.00 GAA and a fantastic .954-SPCT.  Gibney has played seven games in the last nine days and has been a standout in just about every single one.

SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK:  David Stumborg, Humboldt Broncos
1993 D David Stumborg (Humboldt SK) was the biggest source of offense for the Broncos and he also delivered in a big way with fellow standout blueliner Logan Sproule out of the line-up as the Broncos recovered from a game one shellacking to win game two and turn their series with Melfort into a best of five.  He had three assists in the Humboldt game two win to finish the week with a goal and four assists in two games played.

SASKTEL SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK: Matt Gibney, Estevan Bruins
1993 F Matt Gibney (Regina SK) is a big reason why the Bruins aren’t headed out on the road down two games to none in their Wild Card playoff series with Flin Flon.  On Friday night, Gibney blocked 50-shots through 85-minutes, allowing his team to eventually score the game winning goal.  Saturday night’s game went to overtime as well and while Gibney and the Bruins came up short, they are certainly not concerned about their position between the pipes going forward.

SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK:  Eric Bollefer, Nipawin Hawks
1993 D Eric Bollefer (Lake Lenore SK) picked up a third period assist in Nipawin’s 4-3 win over Notre Dame in game two of their best of five Wild Card series and was part of a defense corps that held off the Notre Dame Hounds from rallying to come from behind and taking a strangle hold lead in the series.  In game one, Bollefer and the Hawk defense got off to a slow start by allowing three in the first period, but they tightened up in the final forty minutes and almost came from behind to win.

SJHL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK:  Kevin Madden, Notre Dame  Hounds
1995 F Kevin Madden (London ON) opened the scoring early in the first period of game one of their Wild Card series with Nipawin, setting the tone for a fast start in helping the Hounds win the series opener.  He also had an assist in game two, setting up Jon Paris for a first period goal as the Hounds kept it tight in game two only to fall short.  The series shifts to Wilcox tonight (Monday) and tomorrow.
