THUNDER BAY, Ont. – The Superior International Junior Hockey League announced Monday that English River Miners forward Jared Janke has once again been named the Play It Again Sports player of the week, this time for the period ending Oct. 29.
In two games vs. the Dryden GM Ice Dogs, Janke scored six times and added an assist as the two clubs split a weekend home-and-home set.

His 14 overall tallies tie him for the league lead with his 17 points putting him seventh among all SIJHL skaters.
