Sturgeon Minor Hockey Player of the Week

Eli Swanson-webEli Swanson of the Novice 3A Mustangs

Eli was awarded the “Golden Jersey” after playing a very solid game at defence. He held the blue line in the opponent’s zone very well, had numerous take-aways, and hustled back hard every time. Eli also made smart, crisp passes to both his de- fence partner and the forwards, cleared the puck away from the front of our net, and made timely rushes. He is proving to be an integral part of our blue line.
Way to go Eli!
