SGEU MVP OF THE WEEK: Mark Rumsey, Estevan Bruins

4 games and 4 wins for the Estevan Bruins over the course of their busy week, and no one was more busier at piling up the points than Mark Rumsey. Rumsey had a multi point outing in all four games, adding up to 12 points across the week (6g,6a). The week that was thrusted the Bruins’ forward up to 3rd place in the SJHL scoring race.

 RBC FORWARD OF THE WEEK: Olivier Pouliot, Estevan Bruins

The Estevan Bruins success didn’t end at Rumsey. His linemate, Olivier Pouliot also proved why the Bruins will be a tough task to handle on any night in the SJHL.
The 20-year-old, first year Bruin accumulated 7 points (4g,3a) across four games this week.
The line of Pouliot, Rumsey, and Keagon Little will be a tough matchup for any opposition as long as they stick together.

Runner Up: Alec Saretzky, Humboldt Broncos


The Yorkton Terriers have been in more one-goal games than any team in the SJHL this season. A lot of that has to do with their defense and goaltending.
Tanner Sklaruk picked up two points included the game winning goal in a 5-3 victory on the road against the La Ronge Ice Wolves on Saturday.
The Terriers have allowed the second fewest goals against in the league this year, and that has a lot to do with their mobile defense corps and stellar goaltending.

Yet another Bruin deserving of recognition after the team’s perfect 4 for 4 week.
Goaltender Boston Bilous picked up his first win of the week in a 34 save performance against the Battlefords North Stars. He then added his second shutout of the season on Saturday, turning aside 23/23 in a 6-0 win over the Millionaires. When it looked like his week was done, he was pushed back into action on Sunday following an injury to their starting netminder, and once again was stellar, stopping 12/13 in relief.
