Forward Eric Stout of the Dryden GM Ice Dogs has been named the Play It Again Sports Player of the Week, after posting 8 points in 4 games last week. He is currently 7th in SIJHL scoring with 36 goals and 36 assists in 48 games played, and is first in scoring on the Ice Dogs – with an 11 point lead.

The Brainerd, Minnesota player scored five goals and had three assists as the Ice Dogs went 3 – 1, for the period ending on March 3. Stout is also riding a 12-game scoring streak, with 13 goals and 11 assists throughout.

Stout was recently named the franchise’s goal leader, after scoring his 90th goal with the Ice Dogs to take over first place last month. Currently, Stout has 95 goals to his name. Forward Jacen Bracko held the previous record of 89 with the Ice Dogs.

Stout is now in his final season of Junior A hockey, but is just six points shy of becoming only the 9th SIJHL player to post 200 points throughout his career.

This is the second week in a row where an Ice Dog was named the player of the week. 20-year-old Trygve Many Guns took the honours last week, after racking up a league-high six goals and two assists in four games.

The Ice Dogs are currently in fourth place in the SIJHL standings, with 60 points after 51 games played. The third place Thief River Falls Norskies are in third place with 63 points.
