SJHL DEFENSEMAN OF THE MONTH
Matt Saunderson, Melfort Mustangs
1993 D Matt Saunderson (Saskatoon SK) has, quietly, had a steady, upward climb in his development over the last two seasons that he’s been a member of the Mustangs and he goes into the playoffs as one of their key pillars on the back end.
Saunderson’s last month of the regular season saw him score one goal and seven assists in ten games and also help his club secure a playoff berth after missing out in 2011-12.
Saunderson put up points in five of his last seven games and also got hot during a four game stretch in which he put up six assists. He ends the season with 5-goals and 20-assists in 52-games played
