The Minnesota Wild prospect is first in the OHL with nine wins on the season and last week was named to the 2019 CIBC Canada Russia Series roster. Jack Falkner is the PMHC player of the week. Falkner is considered a dynamic two-way centre for the Major Midget AAA Petes. His countless faceoff wins and defensive plays have been excellent. In seven games, Falkner has six points and is used in numerous key situations. Ben Hart is the PHA top player. Hart presents strong leadership skills on and off the ice with his Minor Peewee AE Petes teammates. He has had a strong start to the season and capped off the week with a fourpoint night, recording two goals and two assists against North Durham in a 6-1 victory. Danica Werry is the PGHA honouree. Werry is a strong leader and sets a high standard of skating, stick handling, and shooting techniques for the Peewee A Ice Kats. On Sunday, Werry ended the Clarington Applefest Tournament with two goals and five assists for a total of seven points as her team won gold.
