Dauphin born players dominate Three Stars this week

Dauphin has struck it big in this week’s Parkland Source for Sports Three Stars of the Week.

Two of three players call Dauphin their home with Garrett Hrechka being named this week’s First Star. The former all-star with the Parkland Rangers enjoyed his most productive weekend offensively for Dauphin. Despite dropping both games, Garrett had two goals over the weekend.

His first on Friday came late in the team’s contest against Steinbach and the 19-year-old found the back of the net again on Saturday night. Hrechka now has four goals and three assists this season in 19 games.

Second Star:

Hayden Lacquette made a beautiful play which resulted in a goal back two weekends ago in what turned out to be a thrilling overtime win for Dauphin over the Portage Terriers.

And although he didn’t record a point this past weekend, Lacquette was solid on the back end and he did produce a few chances. Alternating in and out of the lineup with Tyson Pauze, Lacquette is starting to make the most of his opportunities.

Hayden has one goal and six points in 14 games this season.

Third Star:

His biggest goal as a King came earlier this season in a game against the Swan Valley Stampeders. Midway into the third period, Parker Fofonoff redirected a pass from Jayden Harris into the back of the net and he’s this week’s Third Star.

Like Lacquette, Fofonoff failed to hit the scoresheet this past weekend but it’s not always about points. The 20-year-old is mostly known for his penalty-killing skills and is often tasked with trying to lock down the other team’s top players, something he has done a great job of this season.

Over the weekend set against Steinbach, Fofonoff created some solid chances on Saturday, most notably when he walked off the wall and snapped a shot that ultimately didn’t get past Will Hambley. He got the monkey off his back earlier this season and now, Fofonoff is determined to help this team win in his final junior hockey season.
