The bell rang plenty of times this week for Kian Bell of the Battlefords North Stars as he continues to light the lamp this season.

He would then build off the strong performance with a pair of two goal performances against the Notre Dame Hounds Thursday and Melfort Mustangs Saturday. Bell now sits with 42 goals and 32 assists in 40 games this season.
