To say Kaden Bryant had a good week last week would be an understatement. The 20-year-old from Winnipeg had an incredible week and as a result, he’s the First Star in this week’s Parkland Source for Sports Three Stars of the Week.
The former Forward of the Year in the Manitoba AAA U18 Hockey League scored eight times in just four games as Dauphin won all four games last week.
He had back-to-back hat tricks at the league’s showcase on Tuesday and Wednesday as Dauphin dispatched of the top two teams in the East Division. Bryant also had four assists and now has 17 goals and 12 assists this season. His 29 points are tied for the eighth-most in the league
Colby Jaquet has scored six goals this season; however, no goal was bigger than the one he scored on Saturday night.
Hosting the Portage Terriers, the fifth-place team in the East took Dauphin to overtime, but the Dogs could only earn a point.
Jaquet took a pass off the wall from Nick Braun and sniped it past the glove of Jayden Catellier. It was Colby’s second game-winning goal of the season and while he’s credited mostly because of his defensive play, Jaquet is proving that he can get things done offensively at a great rate.
His six goals are coupled with 24 assists and his 30 points are top 10 in league scoring. Big players come up big in big moments and that’s exactly what Colby does when he gets the opportunity.
A few days before Jaquet played the role of hero, Klim Georgiev helped Dauphin earn two points against the Winnipeg Blues.
Georgiev called his own number in the offensive zone and skated towards the high slot and fired home a perfectly placed shot past the glove of Dawson Green as Dauphin eventually skated off with a 5-2 win.
It was Klim’s second goal of the season and thanks to it, he’s this week’s Third Star. He also has five assists and to note, a few huge hits during his time with the Kings. A physical force with an offensive upside, Georgiev has been a welcomed addition to the Kings blue line and without a doubt, will help the team moving forward.
