Spriggs named MJHL player of week

Bringing the Winnipeg Blues to the verge of a Manitoba Junior Hockey League championship has earned goaltender Byron Spriggs the nod as the MJHL’s player of the week.

The 20-year-old netminder from Winnipeg posted a 2-1 record with a 2.00 goals-against average and .933 save percentage last week to help the Blues take a 3-1 lead on the Dauphin Kings in the best-of-seven league final. Game 5 is slated for tonight at Winnipeg’s MTS Iceplex.

Kings defenceman Tanner Butler of Souris was named runner-up after the 20-year-old notched three assists in three games.

Natives forward off to college

Forward Luke Karakas of the Neepawa Natives has committed to joining the NCAA Division III Wisconsin-Superior Yellowjackets for next season.

Karakas scored 10 goals and set up nine others in 31 games with the Natives after being acquired from the Winkler Flyers in December. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound native of Green Bay, Wis., Karakas finished with 17 goals and 38 points in 60 MJHL games overall this season.
