RBC SJHL PLAYER OF THE MONTH:  Jayden Davis, Estevan Bruins
1999 F Jayden Davis (Alameda SK) led the hot Estevan Bruins down the stretch drive by recording points in twelve straight games as the Bruins went from a fringe playoff team to the number six seed by virtue of their strong month of February where the Bruins went 10-and-2.  Davis scored 6-goals and 12-assists, which included a pair of two goal games (one at home versus Flin Flon and another on the road at Notre Dame). He finished the month with a three point effort against the Weyburn Red Wings. Davis scored 21-goals and 37-assists in 58-games overall, putting him ninth in SJHL scoring.  Runner-up: Tristan Shewchuk, Humboldt.

2000 D Doug Scott (North Vancouver BC) absolutely went off over the last four games of the regular season and paced all league blueliners with 7-goals and 11-assists in 9-games played.  Scott got 15 of those points during a stretch of games between February 17th – 29th and that included a four goal, five point outing versus Kindersley on the 17th. After back to back three assist outings after that, Scott collected two goals and four points in a victory over Notre Dame to end the year.  For the season, Scott finished with 10-goals and 20-assists in 26-games and projects to be one of the most prolific blueliners in the league next season. Runner-up: James Philpott, La Ronge Ice Wolves.
