Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League

Players of the Week: Dec. 14, 2021

SGEU MVP OF THE WEEK: Rayce Ramsay, Humboldt Broncos

 Two more wins, in which ‘the Ram’ allowed only two goals on 65 shots against Notre Dame and in a signature victory over Estevan which overtook the Bruins in the standings, land the Broncos’ goaltender into sole possession of the goalie wins-lead in all of Canadian Junior A hockey. Humboldt entered the new week on top of the SJHL, and Ramsay, the 20-year-old from Saskatoon, is the No. 1 reason for that.

Runner up: Marco Lopez, Melfort Mustangs

RBC FORWARD OF THE WEEK: Beau Larson, Weyburn Red Wings

Beau Larson was front and centre with two goals and six points as the Red Wings upset the Flin Flon Bombers in Manitoba. The 20-year-old winger from Val Marie, SK was consistent over Weyburn’s three-game road trip, posting two points in each game, and was a big part of the Wings’ ability to compete in the game in Melfort, and the two at Flin Flon’s Whitney Forum.

Runner up: Kirk Mullen, Weyburn Red Wings


The third-year Bruin had a game to remember Tuesday night as Estevan pounded the Notre Dame Hounds in Wilcox. Deics, of Bismarck, North Dakota, notched a hat trick from the blue line and added two assists to compile a five-point week in one evening’s work. His production on the night increased his total on the year by a third as he went from 10 points to 15 in the 9-0 rout.

Runner up: Hayden Tuba, Melfort Mustangs


The rookie’s season-o-wonder continued this past week as he and his Terriers beat their arch-rival Melville Millionaires twice. DePape, of Yorkton, notched his third shutout of the campaign Saturday night with a 2-0 win in his hometown and is a major reason for the Terrierrs’ current roll of five wins from their last six. The 2003-born netminder sits second in the SJHL in goals-against average at 2.06, and fourth in save percentage at .924, with 20-year-old veterans all around him in those categories.

DIRECTWEST ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: Tylin Hilbig, Kindersley Klippers

Kindersley native and 2003-born power forward Hilbig notched his first career hat trick Saturday night as his Klippers blew a 5-3 third-period lead to the Melfort Mustangs. An ’03 birth year, Hilbig has been at the top of the Klippers’ scoring charts most of the campaign, and with his younger brother Ethan, have been critical to any success Kindersley has had this year to date.
