 RBC FORWARD OF THE WEEK: Elliot Dutil, Notre Dame Hounds

Hounds’ rookie forward, Elliot Dutil continues to find the back of the net at nearly a goal-per-game pace. This past week he added three more tallies to his already league-leading 14 goals on the season. The fact he’s producing at this rate as a 2003 born, first-year SJHL’er is even more impressive.

The Nipawin Hawks found themselves in a bit of a slump since the SJHL Showcase. However, two games against the La Ronge Ice Wolves where they picked up back-to-back wins may have been what they needed to get the momentum swinging in the other direction. 20-year-old defenseman, Mkyllan Couture picked up a goal and an assist in the Hawks 5-4 shootout win on Friday, before adding another helper in their 4-0 shutout victory on Saturday.

DIRECTWEST SJHL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: Caelan Fitzpatrick, Estevan Bruins

The youth movement across the league has been exceptional with only two 20-year-olds in the Top-10 of the SJHL scoring leaders. One of the young guns excelling this year is Estevan’s Caelan Fitzpatrick who sits in 8th with 21 points in 17 games.
