Three first year Kings make Top 3

He scored the team’s first two goals of the season and he’s scored six since. Luke Morris continues to help the Kings win games and after a tremendous performance in a home-and-home with the Swan Valley Stampeders, Morris has been named this week’s 1st Star in the Parkland Source for Sports Three Stars of the Week.

Luke started his weekend by scoring one goal on Friday and he added two more goals on Saturday and now has eight on the season. Morris’ work ethic is contagious and as the team prepares to take on the top two teams at the MJHL Showcase, watch out for Morris to continue with his great rookie season in Canada. He has 15 points this season.

2nd Star:

Keaton Woolsey hasn’t been relied heavily upon this season as Carson Cherepak has seen the most action; however, the first-year King has certainly stepped up when his number has been called.

Woolsey recorded two wins in his first three games as a King and now, he has his first shutout. In a 4-0 win against Swan Valley on Saturday, Woolsey made 18 saves, several of which came off excellent powerplay opportunities from the Stampeders.

Keaton is now 3-1 with a superb 1.75 goals-against average to go along with a .944 save percentage.

3rd Star:

It took Tanner Brouwer a little while to find his step in the league, having come from south of the border. But when he did, he started taking over the game.

Another first-year King, Brouwer has been named this week’s third star after arguably he played his best hockey in two games over the weekend.

First on Friday, he scored his first goal of the season in a win against the Stampeders and he had another solid game on Sunday, using his body to create offensive chances.

“We know he has what it takes to be an elite player,” said Doug Hedley.

Now that Brouwer has found the back of the net and some confidence, watch out for the big man from Pine City, Minnesota.  He did after all score 13 times in just 21 games with St. Thomas Academy last season.
