(Left: Defenseman, Colby Ball; Right: Forward, Jonathan Krahn)


The SJHL released their weekly awards for the first week of December, and it found a couple Millionaires players front and center. Team Captain Jonathan Krahn was named the RBC Forward of The Week, and Rookie Blueliner Colby Ball was named the Mayfair Diagnostics Defenseman of the Week.

The Millionaires have picked up 10 out of a possible 14 points in their last 7 games and find themselves right back in the playoff race. The captain of the Mills, Krahn, has been a clear focal point of Melville’s turnaround. This week he added four goals in three games. Krahn has compiled 17 points in 22 game this season, 6 of which have come in his past 6 games. This past week’s scoring leading defenseman also came from the new look Millionaires. Colby Ball provided offense from the backend in both the Mills victories. He set up the insurance marker in a 3-1 win over Notre Dame, before adding two more assists in a 4-3 win over Weyburn. The lone time Ball wasn’t on the scoresheet came in the only game Melville didn’t secure two points.

The two players look to stay hot heading into the weekend with a home-and-home matchup against the Yorkton Terriers.
