Carson Cherepak is an MJHL Star of the Week and he’s also the first star in this week’s Parkland Source for Sports Three Stars of the Week.
The 19-year-old completely dominated this past weekend, winning both of his starts, one of which was a shutout. He has a 0.48 goals-against average to go along with an incredible .964 save percentage.
In his two games, he allowed just one goal. And he was a perfect 3-for-3 in Saturday night’s shootout as Dauphin earned another weekend sweep and stayed atop the West Division.
The former Goaltender of the Year with the Winnipeg Wild of the Manitoba AAA U18 Hockey League is now 12-3 this season. His .935 save percentage is second-best in the league as is his 1.88 goals-against average. Carson has also played the most minutes of any goaltender in the league.
He finally got the monkey off his back on Friday night and on Saturday night, he earned one of his most important assists as a King.
Jayden Harris is this week’s second star after a tremendous weekend. He had a gorgeous goal on Friday night in the team’s 5-0 win and on Saturday, he made a beautiful play up the left side of the ice where he outlasted the defender and found Parker Fofonoff in front of the net. That goal forced overtime and eventually, Dauphin won in a shootout.
With one goal and one assist over the weekend, Harris is proving that he’s not only a lockdown defender, but he can come up clutch offensively in big spots.
Parker Fofonoff scored his first goal of the season earlier this year against the Virden Oil Capitals and it was well overdue. And on Saturday, he scored his biggest goal as a King to date.
Receiving that pass from Harris, Parker still had to finish it off and that’s what he did as he placed it perfectly over the glove of Kobe Grant.
Known as a penalty killing specialist, Fofonoff never takes a shift off and he is beginning to reap the benefits of that.
Next up for the Kings is another home-and-home this weekend with the Swan Valley Stampeders.
