Mils' Martin named SJHL Rookie of the Week

Trevor Martin, Melville Millionaires

1996 G Trevor Martin (Ardrossan AB) will get the lion’s share of the work for the Mils down the stretch and he’s proving to be quite a force to opposing shooters.  Martin went 1-0-0-and-1 with a 1.44-GAA and .952-SPCT as the Mils lost 2-1 in a shootout to Weyburn on Friday before rebounding to defeat Notre Dame on Saturday.  Remarkably, Martin’s weekly numbers aren’t as good as his regular season ones.  He’s 5-3-and-2, 1.19, .960, 2-shutouts.

(Linden McCorrister)

After a convincing 6-0 win on Tuesday night, the Swan Valley Stampeders dropped a 4-1 decision on home ice on Friday night to the Winkler Flyers.

After a scoreless 1st period, the Flyers wouldn't take long to open the scoring just 38 seconds into the middle frame as Patrice Wren would deflect home his 12th goal of the season to give them an early 1-0 lead. Short time later, Lawson McDonald would gobble up on a rebound in front after Stamps goalie Graham Hunt made some good saves for his 9th of the year to put Winkler up 2. The Flyers weren't done there as former Stampeder Bryce Enns would snipe one top shelf on Hunt for his 9th to give them a 3-0 lead after 40 minutes.

In the 3rd, the Flyers would increase their lead to 4 with the 2 man aFdvantage as McDonald would take a nice feed in front and snap home his 2nd of the night and 10th of the season to push the Flyers up 4-zip. The Stampeders would get on the board before the final buzzer as Linden McCorrister (pictured above) would slip it five-hole on Flyers netminder Dasan Sydora to put the Stamps on the board but that's as close as they would get as Winkler Flyers won their 25th game a 4-1 win over Swan Valley, and their 3rd straight win over the Stamps.

Jagger Thomas, who was dealt from Swan to Winkler just before the Trade Deadline had 2 assists in his return to Swan River as a Flyer.

Dasan Sydora turned aside 34 Swan Valley shots for his 21st victory of the season while Graham Hunt made 31 saves in a losing cause.

The Stamps still sit one point behind the Selkirk Steelers for 6th in the MJHL standings and they will go right back at it on Saturday night when they host the Virden Oil Capitals from the Centennial Arena while Winkler will continue roady in OCN also tomorrow (Sat).

Also in the MJHL,

Mitch Wiebe once again was very solid between the pipes stopping 30 shots for the victory.

The Wolverines finish off their roady on Saturday when they visit the Steinbach Pistons.

Kamsack's Hilderman scores twice to lead West to victory at CJHL's Prospects Game in Oakville

After going goal-less through 40 games with BCHL's Penticton Vees, Kamsack product Jarod Hilderman (pictured above) broke out in a big way last night for Team West at the 2015 CJHL Prospects Game in Oakville, Ontario.

The 17-year old defenceman scored 2 goals for West including the game winner with just over 7 seconds remaining to lead his team to a 3-2 victory over Team East.

The University of Minnesota-Duluth commit has just 6 assists so far with the Vees, in his 2nd season with the team.

I had a chance to catch up with Hilderman to chat about the game below.
