OCN Blizzard goaltender Matt Krahn was unbeatable last week, posting three straight wins, earning him MJHL Player of the Week honours for the week of Dec. 7-12.
The Winnipeg native allowed only five goals on 88 shots, posting an impressive 1.62 GAA and .943 save per centage. The 19-year-old, who came to the Blizzard, via the WHL, recently played for Team West at the World Junior A Challenge in Penticton, B.C. His overall GAA of 2.34 has him sitting second among MJHL goaltenders.
Runners-up for the MJHL Player of the Week were Shane Luke of the Dauphin Kings and Ryan Marshall of the Swan Valley Stampeders.
Luke, 20, held a hot stick last week, scoring four goals and recording six points in two games -both wins - for the Kings, who sit third in the Sher-Wood Division with 20 wins and 42 points. Luke, who is the defending MJHL points champion, scored two of his four goals while on the powerplay.
Marshall, 19, recorded five points (2-3) in four games last week for the Stamps, who sit second in the Sher-Wood Division with 22 wins and 46 points. Marshall also played for Team West at the World Junior A Challenge.
