New SJHL President Bill Chow was kind enough to join me in the press-box after the Melfort – Nipawin game last Friday. Chow was in town as he tours around the league. The best part of the night was when the Mustangs music man Jared Linnen played “Sharp Dressed Man” right after the President had been introduced. He claims it was a coincidence but I don’t believe him.
The interview is below.
-The SJHL has announced its week one awards. Matt Hrynkiw of the Humboldt Broncos is the SJHL goaltender of the week. The Saskatoon native has stopped 39-40 shots he has faced this season while remaining undefeated at 2-0.
Meanwhile, Nipawin Hawks rookie Tad Kozun takes home Player of the Week honors. The local 18-year-old has 9 points in his first 5 games in the SJHL.
Brandt Weldon of the Flin Flon Bombers earned Defenseman of the Week honors with a 5 point week to open the season.
