THUNDER BAY, Ont. – The Superior International Junior Hockey League announced Tuesday that Fort Frances Lakers forward Tyler Broderson has been selected the Pizza Hut player of the week for the period concluding Feb. 17.
In two games this past week the 18-year-old native of St. Louis Park, Minn., registered four points helping Fort Frances skate to a pair of victories and move into sole possession of second place in the SIJHL standings.
Broderson began his award-wining effort by scoring once and setting up another in a 4-3 triumph over the visiting Minnesota Iron Rangers last Tuesday.
Three nights later he tallied once again and picked up another assist helping the Lakers skate to a 5-2 win on the road over the Iron Rangers in Hoyt Lakes.
Broderson is presently riding a modest three-game consecutive goal and point streak and has accumulated 11 points in nine contests since joining the club last month, including eight tallies, of which two have been game-winners.
Honourable Mention for Pizza Hut player of the week went to Jake Larson, a forward with the Minnesota Wilderness.
At the conclusion of the 2012-13 regular season the SIJHL’s top performer will earn the Pizza Hut player of the year award.
