Keenleyside, Wells & Bruchkowski earn SJHL Player of the Week Honours

Cole Keenleyside, Yorkton Terriers

1998 F Cole Keenleyside (Hazlet SK) helped the lowly Terriers pick up rare back to back wins against the Kindersley Klippers as well as an overtime point on Sunday against La Ronge Ice Wolves by contributing 4-goals and 2-assists in 3-games played.  His big contest was a hat trick in the second game against the Klippers on Friday, but he also had three points against them on Wednesday.  He played his 150th career game as a Terrier on Sunday.  He’s up to 15-goals and 12-assists in 51-games this year.  Runner-up:  Tanner Zentner, Melfort.

Brandon Wells, Melville Millionaires

1997 G Brandon Wells (Spirit River AB) backstopped his club to a pair of victories this week, Tuesday over Kindersley, and Saturday over La Ronge.  On Tuesday, he steered away 22-of-24, and was perfect after the first period as the Mils prevailed in overtime.  On Saturday, he turned back 27-of-28 and his teammates rallied for three in the third period for a 4-1 decision.  With Wells and Colby Entz both on top of their game, the Mils may have one of the best 1-2 tandems in the league.  He’s 4-and-5, 3.27, .902 overall.  Runner-up:  Joe Marcouiller, Yorkton.

Cody Bruchkowski, Yorkton Terriers

1999 F Cody Bruchkowski (Cochenour ON) has been a very consistent player for the Terriers all year and he pitched in 4-assists in 3-games this past week, helping Yorkton to a pair of wins and an OT loss in the process.  He picked up an asssist versus Kindersley on Wednesday, added two more against the Klippers on Friday, and finished the week with a helper against La Ronge on Sunday.  Bruchkowski, actually, has 8-assists in his last 4-games and now is up to 14-goals and 29-assists in 46-games.  Runner-up:  Jared Hamm, Notre Dame.
