Thief River Falls Norskies goalie Kross Braaten has been named SIJHL Player of the Week.

In two games last week, the 19 year-old didn't allow a goal in regulation or overtime.

Braaten turned aside all 16-shots he faced in a relief effort and shootout win over English River.

The next night he started and made 26-saves for his first junior hockey shutout.

Braeden Allkins of the Dryden GM Ice Dogs and Austin Kuhn of the English River Miners also received consideration.
