SGEU MVP of the Week & Sasktel Goalie of the Week: Will Dyke, Melville Millionaires

The big Newfoundland goaltender has been so consistent all year for the Mils, but he has taken it to another level in the last three starts. Will Dyke has now just given up one goal in his last 180 minutes, a span that included two critical home shutout victories for Melville this past week against the Kindersley Klippers. Friday’s goose egg put him into a three-way tie for first in the SJHL on shutouts with four on the campaign so far.
Weekly Stats: 2-0-0-0, 2SOs, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 SV%, 47 saves

Bourgault Forward of the Week: Aidyn Hutchinson, Melfort Mustangs

Aidyn Hutchinson has been on an absolute tear really in all of 2024 so far, and 10 points in three games this past week in three big wins to catapult the Mustangs into second place has just been par for the course. His line with Logan Belton and Clay Sleeva is easily one of the best in the league at the minute, and a six-point outing in a 7-4 win over Estevan last Wednesday is a career-high for the league’s fourth-leading scorer.
Weekly Stats: 3GP, 5G-5A, 10 PTSĀ 

SuperU Defenceman of the Week: Felix Allard, Estevan Bruins

Felix Allard hangs on to his Defenceman of the Week honour with a solid showing up in the Whitney Forum against the Flin Flon Bombers, one that included three points and a shootout winner Friday night. The goal pushed Allard into first in goals among defenceman in the league with 18, and his game has truly benefited from playing with the veteran defensive-defenceman Lucas Rybinski night in and night out.
Weekly Stats: 3GP, 1G-2A, 3 PTS, 1SOW

DirectWest Rookie of the Week: Anthony McIntosh, Yorkton Terriers

No rookie defenceman in the league is relied upon more by their respective team than Anthony McIntosh, and the SJ/MJ Showcase standout was instrumental in the Terriers’ late-season push to make the race for the last playoff spot interesting. Wins this past week over Notre Dame, Kindersley, and Nipawin have done just enough to keep their hopes alive, and there will be no shortage of reliance on the 2005-born McIntosh the rest of the way.
Weekly Stats: 4GP, 1G-2A, 3 PTS

Canterra Seeds Saskatchewan Player of the Week: Clay Sleeva, Melfort Mustangs (from Canora, Sask)

It was yet another impressive week from the Mustangs top line, and specifically, the chemistry between Sleeva and Hutchinson has been scintillating. Sleeva’s five-point effort against Estevan was critical in Melfort’s dominant third period, and he has goals in five of his last six contests as the Mustangs are arguably the league’s hottest team heading into the playoffs.
Weekly Stats: 3GP, 4G-4A, 8 PTS
