Hayden Lacquette continues to get recognition from the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and he deserves every bit of it.

After he was named an MJHL Star of the Week following last week's play, he has now been named the Safe Work Manitoba Defenseman of the Month for November.

Lacquette put together a fantastic month as he racked up 13 points in just nine games, four of which were goals. Hayden is tied for seventh in league scoring as the team plays the OCN Blizzard at Stride Place twice this weekend. He also leads Portage in points as they're just three points back of Steinbach for first place in the East Division.

Meanwhile, in Neepawa, Mason Lobreau has been named the Original 16 Goaltender of the Month. He won five of seven games that he started last month. He earned one shutout and had a spectacular .950 save percentage to go along with a fantastic 1.57 goals-against average. Neepawa is now just three points back of the final playoff spot in the West Division.
