Steinbach Pistons’ forward Mitch Chagnon has been named MJHL Player of the Week after recording six powerplay assists for the week ending December 19.
The native of Kenora scored a total of 10 points (2-8) for the Pistons who currently sit fourth in the Addision Division with 13 wins and 29 points after 37 games. Over his hot three-game stretch last week, Chagnon, 19, obviously took a page out of the scoring book of his favourite NHL player, Pavel Datsyuk of Detroit Red Wings, who knows where to find the net.
Runners-up for the Player of the Week honours went to Winkler Flyers’ forward Jordan Neduzak and forward Kyle Johnson of the Dauphin Kings.
Neduzak, 18, recorded six points (1-5) in two games last week for the Flyers who have 20 wins after 38 games. Neduzak, who hails from Morden, is a key member of the offensive attack, sitting fourth in the Flyers’ scoring race with 10 goals and 32 points after 37 games.
Johnson, who was named a Player of the Week last month, scored three powerplay goals in two games. In total, he registered six points (3-3) for the Kings.
