North Stars forward MacGregor Sinclair capped off a fabulous month in November with a four goal, seven-point performance against the La Ronge Ice Wolves on Nov. 28, which helped propel him to Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League player of the month.

In 11 games played, the Irma, Alta. native had 12 goals and nine assists for 21 points. He had at least one point in all but two games in November. Three of his 12 goals were also game-winners, giving him six game-winning-goals this season, and tops in the league.

Sinclair currently sits third in league scoring with 21 goals and 21 assists in 25 games.

Runner-up for player of the month was Estevan's Kaelan Holt, who recorded 11 goals and 10 assists in 12 November games. He also went pointless in just two games the entire month.

North Stars defenceman Levi Kleiboer was runner-up for SJHL defenceman of the month, losing out to Melville's Clayton Eisler. Eisler had four goals and seven assists for 11 points in 13 games. Kleiboer had one goal and nine assists in 11 games.

The goaltender of the month was Notre Dame's Jacob Standen, who went 5-1-0-2 with a .935 save percentage and 1.59 goals-against-average.

Weyburn's Jordan Kazymyra won rookie of the month thanks to his eight goals and four assists for 12 points in 12 games.

Sinclair was also named the player of the week on Monday for the second consecutive time. After his seven-point performance on Tuesday, he had an assist in Friday's loss and a shorthanded goal in Saturday's loss, giving him nine points last week. He currently has the longest point-streak in the league at nine games, with 12 goals and nine assists over that span.

The North Stars host the Humboldt Broncos in their next game on Tuesday night for the annual Teddy Bear Toss.
