Mark Cross

HUMBOLDT, COACH / ESTEVAN, F 16 people tragically lost their lives in the Humboldt Broncos’ bus crash the evening of Saturday, April 6th, 2018.  Among them, was Broncos’ Assistant Coach Mark Cross, a Strasbourg, SK product who had just wrapped up a fantastic junior and university playing career, and a budding coaching star.  Cross played three […]

Jake Fletcher

ESTEVAN BRUINS, F With a lot of high-profile scorers in the Estevan Bruins’ forward group, it’s been fair to say that Jake Fletcher has flown under the radar during his three year career.  He was obviously noticed by Chris Lewgood and the Bruins’ coaching staff however, as he was given the captaincy for his 20-year-old […]

Brandan Arnold

NIPAWIN HAWKS, F As the Nipawin Hawks get set for their Canalta Cup Final series against Estevan, they’ve been riding the hot hand of 20-year-old forward Brandan Arnold.  After 60-points in just 43 regular season games, Arnold has racked up 9-goals and 14-points in 9-games.  He’s had four multi-point games in those nine, including a […]

Jaxon Joseph

HUMBOLDT BRONCOS, F Humboldt’s Jaxon Joseph enters the SJHL Semi-Finals tied for the league-lead in playoff goals, bulging the twine six times in five games during the Broncos’ five game series win over Melfort in the Quarter-Finals.  Joseph had points in all five games, finishing with eight points in the series, in what had to […]

MacGregor Sinclair

BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS, F Layne Young got the bulk of the headlines from Battlefords this season and for good reason, joining some rare company with a 100+ point campaign, but almost lost in the shadows was probably the league’s most improved player year-over-year in Stars’ second-year forward MacGregor Sinclair.  The Irma, AB product put up […]

Bo Didur

ESTEVAN BRUINS, G Not that goaltending was ever an achilles heel for the Estevan Bruins this season, but it would be hard to argue that Bo Didur’s arrival in December didn’t further solidify the position down the stretch.  Didur was 12-5-1-1 during the regular season, with a 2.46 GAA, .920% and a shutout.  He was […]


NOTRE DAME HOUNDS, F Chaz Smedsrud spent a chunk of last season playing with two of the league’s top players, in Ben Duperreault (tied for SJHL scoring lead) and Adam Dawe (Top Scoring Rookie and NCAA Division I commit), and he picked up a solid 33-points in 45-games as a rookie.  With his familiar linemates moving […]


WEYBURN RED WINGS, F Morden, Manitoba’s Cade Kowalski is putting a bow on one heck of an SJHL rookie season.  The 18-year-old was named to the SJHL’s All-Rookie Team after a regular season that saw him lead all rookies in scoring with 60-points (11g-49a).  His first post-season run is off to a fine start as […]

Donavan Houle-Villeneuve

FLIN FLON BOMBERS, F Donavan Houle-Villeneuve scored in every game of the Flin Flon Bombers’ Wild Card series win against Notre Dame, and he kept out-doing himself.  The rookie from Montreal scored once in Game 1, twice in Game 2, and finished off with a hat trick in the deciding Game 3 in Wilcox.  Six goals […]

Chase Norrish

ALUMNI – YORKTON TERRIERS, D After three phenomenal seasons with the Yorkton Terriers, and four more in the NCAA Division I ranks at Rochester Institute of Technology, defenseman Chase Norrish has gone pro, signing an Amateur Tryout Agreement with the ECHL’s Colorado Eagles.  The 24-year-old played 128 college games at RIT, putting up 19-goals and […]
