SASKTEL SJHL GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK: Xavier Cannon, La Ronge Ice Wolves
When Xavier Cannon is healthy and, on his game, he’s unarguably one of the best goalies in the SJHL. He proved it this past week, leading the Ice Wolves to back-to-back wins in a weekend series against the Nipawin Hawks, stopping 45 of 48 shots for a .938 SV%. The Ice Wolves have snuck back into the 8th and final playoff spot. They are going to need to address their goals against average, and Cannon in net will be a big piece towards that goal.
Weekly Stats: (2GP, 2-0-0-0, 3GA, 45/48, 1.44 GAA, .938 SV%,)

DIRECTWEST SJHL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: Trenton Curtis, Melfort Mustangs
Once again, a rookie was tied for the league lead in points over the past week. Credit the youth movement in the SJHL for the laundry list of talented first-year players. Curtis suited up for 13 games in the AJHL in 2020/21, however still classifies as a rookie under the SJHL constitution. Thanks to his 6-point effort this past week, he now finds himself just one point shy of a point per game pace this season.
