Petruic and Granville Named SJHL Players of the Month

RBC SJHL PLAYER OF THE MONTH:  Chantz Petruic, Yorkton Terriers
1999 F Chantz Petruic (Moose Jaw SK) wins the award for the second straight month and actually trumped his September/October performance as he terrorized the league with 15-goals and 12-assists in 13-games played.  His 27-points in 13-games represents an improvement over Sept/Oct when he had 34-points in 18-games. Petruic lit up the league leading Battlefords North Stars on November 13th with 4-goals and 2-assists in a 6-4 win.  Petruic scored 10-points in 3-games against the Stars this month and he had 9-points in 4-games against Kindersley, including three points in a 3-2 overtime win over the Klippers on November 30th. His first nine games this past month were on the road, and he had 12-goals and 10-assists in those contests.  He leads the league with 32-goals and 29-assists in 31-games overall but he’s down the list considerably as far as powerplay goals are concerned, which makes his production all the more impressive. Runner-up: Cole Rafuse, Flin Flon.

2000 D Ryan Granville (Sherwood Park AB) boosted a thin Yorkton D corps by scoring 1-goal and 8-assists in 12-games played during the month of November.  His highlight game was on November 27th against his former club, Battlefords North Stars, when he chipped in with three assists in a 5-1 victory. In fact, Granville posted 4-assists in 3-games played against the top ranked Stars this month.  He also had points in four straight road games November 8-13 and he goes into December with 3-goals and 13-assists in 30-games played overall. Runner-up: James Philpott, La Ronge.
