The Manitoba Junior Hockey League announced that forward Kolten Kanaski has been awarded as the player of the week for the past week of play. 

MJHL Names Kolten Kanaski Player of the Week

Kanaski, 19, stepped up his already highly offensive game and delivered a nine-point week in just four league games. He contributed a goal and an assist against Steinbach on Thursday, a goal and two assists against the Blizzard on Saturday, two more assists against the Blizzard again on Sunday and another two points in OCN on Tuesday.

The 5-foot-10, 187-pound forward has only been held without a point in three contests this season, putting together a 14-goal, 27-point, 58-penalty minute stat line in 20 games. Kanaski has also put together nine multi-point efforts, including his last six-straight games. 

The Beausejour native’s contributions have helped his Virden Oil Capitals to a 10-9-5 record. The Oil Caps are currently on a six-game winning streak, and will look to pick things back up on Wednesday as Kanaski and Co. travel to Swan Valley for a 7:30 P.M. showdown with the Stampeders.
