The Manitoba AAA U18 Hockey League is proud to announce that Albert Sinclair of the Norman Northstars is the CCM Hockey Player of the Week!
In three games this past week, Sinclair had 7 goals and 5 assists for a 12 point weekend! On Friday, with the Northstars in Kenora to face the Thistles, Sinclair recorded a hat trick and contributed 2 assists. He tallied 2 of those points on the power play and 1 while shorthanded. Sinclair's effort helped the Northstars earn their second win of the season, defeating the Thistles by a 7-4 margin. On Saturday, against those same Thistles, Sinclair notched 2 goals on the power play and added 2 assists for a 4 point game. The Northstars beat the Thistles 8-3 and earned their third win of the season. Finally on Sunday, with the Northstars in Teulon to face the Lightning, Sinclair and the Northstars continued their hot streak. Sinclair scored twice and added another assist, and the Northstars won their third straight game, beating the Lightning 6-4.
Sinclair contributes at both ends of the ice for the Northstars, and he is a valuable member of both the power play and penalty kill. The Split Lake product is in his 3rd season with the Northstars and has well surpassed his season high in points (previously 7), with 33 through 28 games thus far.
