For the second straight week, the SJHL players of the week have a Bomber in it.
This time, it’s two as goalie Brenden Newton (Medicine Hat, AB) has been named the SaskTel Goalie of the Week and rookie Ethan Daniels (Fairbanks, AK) has picked up the Rookie of the Week.
Newton went 2-1 during the week, only allowing three goals in regulation time.
It started on Monday at the SJHL Showcase when he lost his lone game, a 2-1 shootout loss against the Notre Dame Hounds. He followed that up with five plus periods of shutout hockey against the Melville Millionaires.
On the season the third year goaltender is 4-1-2 with a goals against average of 1.69 and a save percentage of .944.
For the 1998 born Daniel, he picked up four points (2g, 2a) over the three games including a goal and a helper against Melville on Friday night.
