Mayfair Diagnostics Defensemen of the Week – Austin King-Cunningham – Estevan Bruins
AKC was a force to be reckoned with in a dominating 7-0 Bruins’ victory over the Weyburn Red Wings on Friday night, and did so in a discipline way. The 20-year-old captain of the Bruins scored twice and added an assist on Friday, while also staying out of the penalty box. Although he was held of the score sheet in Saturday’s meeting with the Red Wings, his solid defensive play helped the Bruins secure a 3-1 victory.

SaskTel Goaltender of the Week – Boston Bilous – Estevan Bruins
The first shutout of the 2020/21 SJHL season belongs to 2001 G- Boston Bilous, which earned him the GOTW nod over some other deserving performances from goaltenders across the league. Rathan Robbins stopped 96 of 103 shots faced in two games for the Notre Dame Hounds. La Ronge’s Xavier Cannon picked up two wins. However, it was the 26-save shutout performance that rises to the top for the Moose Jaw Warrior loan.
