This recognition comes just after the 19-year-old forward put together three goals and nine points in three games in a highly productive week for the Virden Oil Capitals. On the season, the former Eastman Select has 32 goals, 29 assists and 61 points – good enough for fourth place in the league.
Following a one-goal, three-assist night against the Neepawa Natives on Wednesday, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Kanaski put up another two points on Thursday, before scoring a goal and three points against the same Natives Saturday evening.
The third-year MJHL player also boasts an incredible 174 penalty minutes this season, placing him third in the league – trailing just Sequoia Swan (185) and Preston Seymour (204). In 151 MJHL games with the Virden Oil Capitals, Kanaski has 57 goals, 103 points and 309 penalty minutes.
