Gaudet, 18, also showcased his playing abilities reflected in six assists in three games. The Winnipegger also chipped in two assists for the Saints who sit third in the tight Addision Division with 19 wins and 39 points after 34 games.
Marshall excelled offensively last week, reflected in six points (2-4) in just two games for the Stamps who sit tied for first in the Sher-Wood Division with Portage Terriers. Stamps have 20 wins and 42 points after 34 games.
