Bear, Mayan, and Palmer all Recognized

The Canalta Hotels SJHL Player Of The Week is 1995 F Travis Mayan (Rimbey AB) of the Melfort Mustangs.  Mayan helped lead the Mustangs to their second straight league title by finishing the series with Flin Flon by tallying 3-goals and 2-assists in the final four games and he ended up with 6-goals and 2-assists in the series.  He finishes as the league’s leading point getter in the postseason with 12-goals and 11-assists in 17-games played.

The Sasktel SJHL Goaltender Of The Week is 1995 G Richard Palmer (Calgary AB) returned from injury layoff to win three straight starts as he backstopped the Mustangs to their second straight Canalta Cup crown.  Palmer posted a 1.25-GAA and .968-SPCT along the way as two of the three wins came on the road.

The IBAS SJHL Defenseman Of The Week is 1995 D Kirk Bear (Ochapawace SK) of the Melfort Mustangs.  Bear had two assists in the final four games of the Canalta Cup finals and proved to be a crucial component on a rebuilt blueline that started to take shape in January after Bear was acquired from the Melville Millionaires.  Bear finishes the playoffs with 7-points in 17-games.
