Two Terriers honoured for SJHL Weekly Awards 

Canalta Hotels SJHL Player of the Week: Jared Legien, Yorkton Terriers
With the Yorkton Terriers having played the most games of any team in the SJHL, they had to make some hay while the sun shines and in their two games against the Kindersley Klippers this week they did just that winning the first 5-4 before falling by the same score in overtime in the second. Jared Legien, a 1998-born player from Pilot Butte, was the offensive catalyst for the Terriers scoring three goals and setting up three others in the two contests helping Yorkton move into a three-way tie for sixth place overall in the standings. Legien had two goals and two helpers in the win on Tuesday and then added another goal and an assist in the loss on Friday. Runner-up: Cole Plotnikoff, Kindersley Klippers.

IBAS SJHL Defenceman of the Week: Regan Seiferling, Yorkton Terriers
Third-year defenceman Regan Seiferling also enjoyed a strong week in the pair of contests against Kindersley as the 1997-born Moose Jaw native had two assists in each of the games against the Klippers. Seiferling, who is committed to attend Rochester Institute of Technology in the fall, is now tied for seventh among blueliners in scoring despite missing a number of games at Christmas when he played for Team West at the World Junior “A” Challenge. Runner-up:  Nick Rein, Notre Dame Hounds.
