TWO Dauphin Kings top the list of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League's February players of the month.
Kings forward Jon Gaudet, 20, was named the RBC player of the month after leading all MJHL scorers with a whopping 24 points in only 11 games. Gaudet's teammate, blue-liner Tanner Butler, was named MJHL Sherwood Hockey defenceman of the month.
Rookie of the month went for the second time to Winkler Flyers player Tristan Keck, who scored five goals and eight assists in February.
Another repeat was Winnipeg Blues netminder Isaiah Plett, named MGEU goaltender of the month after winning all six of his February games and earning a .956 save percentage.
Winkler Flyers goalie Reed Peters battled hard to help carry his team to the final playoff spot in the Addison Division last week, posting a 4-1 record down the stretch.
His efforts didn't go unnoticed: on Tuesday, Peters was named the Recycle Everywhere MJHL player of the week for the period ending March 3.
Runners-up included 20-year-old Steinbach Pistons goalie Corey Koop and Dauphin Kings forward Guillaume Naud.
Brenton earns weekly honour
UNIVERSITY of Winnipeg wrestler Briston Brenton has another honour to help shine the medal around his neck.
Brenton, who won gold in the 82-kilogram weight class at last weekend's CIS Wrestling Championships in London, Ont., was named the Wesmen Pizza Hotline's CIS male player of the week on Tuesday.
Kudos in the sport is a family affair: Brenton's sister, second-year wrestler Jessica Brenton, was named the female Wesmen CIS player of the week, after she placed sixth in her 63-kilogram weight class at the championships. She won one silver and two bronze medals during the 2012-13 season.
High school stars of the week
Glenboro Panthers basketball co-captain Mackenzie Murray (right) was named the Tri-Star Rural high school athlete of the week on Tuesday, after the wing/guard turned in an all-star performance at the MacGregor tournament over the weekend. The Panthers won the tournament, with Murray averaging 17 points per game.
Fort Richmond Centurion hockey centre Leah Olsen (left) was awarded the Home Run Sports urban high school athlete of the week, after she scored 17 goals and 28 points in 20 regular-season games while leading her team to a divisional quarter-final of the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League.
