(for period October 21 - November 24)
RBC PLAYER OF THE MONTH: Tad Kozun, Nipawin Hawks
1993 F Tad Kozun (Nipawin SK) fired an incredible 15-goals and 5-assists in 13-games played over the last month. His accomplishments are all the more impressive when you factor in the low goal scoring totals that have blanketed the entire SJHL this season. No other performer had more than 8 goals in the last month. He had six multi-goal games, including a hat trick against La Ronge on November 23rd. He's threatening to run away with the SJHL scoring title, sitting with 25-goals and 12-assists in 24-games as of the ending time period for this award.
SASKTEL GOALTENDER OF THE MONTH: Kale Thomson, Yorkton Terriers
1993 G Kale Thomson (Yorkton SK) was spectacular as the Terrier workhorse this month, compiling a 7-2-and-2 record and one shutout. He posted a 1.51-GAA for the month and a sparkling .950-SPCT. The performance is all the more impressive when you consider his first six starts this month were on the road. He was beaten three times in a game only twice and has allowed more than three ni a game just once all season. Thomson, the SJHL's most used goalie of the season, ends the period with a regular season record of 13-5-and-2, a 1.93-GAA, and a SPCT of .932.
SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE MONTH: Ryan Cooper, Weyburn Red Wings
1993 D Ryan Cooper (New Westminster BC) accepted an on-ice leadership role with the rebuilding Red Wings this past month and posted 3-goals and 7-assists in 12-games played. He finished the month with points in six of his last eight and he bolstered his totals with a two game performance in early November when he recorded five points. Cooper, this season, has played 22-games and has 3-goals and 13-assists. (NOTE: Cooper was traded to the Dauphin Kings of the MJHL this week.)
SJHL ROOKIE OF THE MONTH: Ryland Pashovitz, Humboldt Broncos
1995 G Ryland Pashovitz (Saskatoon SK) is capitalizing on this being a year of reduced scoring in the SJHL. Very few goalies, let alone rookies, have been better than Pashovitz this season as he went on a blitz this month that saw him go 4-0-0-and-1 with a pair of shutouts, a 1.28-GAA and a .957-SPCT. He gave up only eight goals all month with shoutouts against Yorkton on October 22nd and Flin Flon November 9th. Overall at the time of the award, he's 6-0-and-1, 1.34, .956.

Sebastien Beauregard, La Ronge Ice Wolves
1993 F Sebastien Beauregard (Bromont PQ) led the Ice Wolves to a red hot start to begin the season, ripping off 13-goals and 4-assists in 11-games played.

He also had a stretch during the month when he had, at least, a point in six of seven games.
SJHL ROOKIE OF THE MONTH
Rylan Parenteau, Weyburn Red Wings
1996 G Rylan Parenteau (Saskatoon SK) started his SJHL career like a house on fire as he shut out the Yorkton Terriers in his first start and then went on to post a 4-and-6 record to go with a stellar 2.71-GAA and .932-SPCT. Playing behind a young team, Parenteau has seen, a minimum, of 36 shots a game through eight of his first ten starts.
SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE MONTH
Tyrell King, Kindersley Klippers
1994 G Tyrell King (Eston SK) ripped off a 7-1-0-and-1 record as well as a 2.11-GAA and. 935-SPCT to begin the season in leading the Klippers to the top of the standings. King didn’t give up more than three goals in any one start and maybe saved his best for his last game of the time period on October 19th when he blocked 38 of 39 against the Battlefords North Stars.
