For those keeping their eyes on the Kindersley Jr Klippers this season, it's well known the Matt Pesenti deserves to be in the conversation for the best goaltender in the league, and this week he's getting recognized by the league as the MVP of the Week in the SJHL.

Pesenti has been net for the Klippers last five wins, earning three of them in the shootout in which he went 9/9 against opponent's shooters, and overall he put up impressive numbers last week with a 94.4% save perecentage. His best performance came when he stopped 50/52 shots before stopping 3/3 in the shootout to earn a win over the Yorkton Terriers.

Every highlight package you see from the Klippers usually contains a few saves from Pesenti. As the playoff push gets tighter towards the end of the season, Pesenti has become more relied upon, playing more games in a row than he has at any other point this season.

Also recognized in this week's SJHL Awards of the Week was Klippers defenceman Josh Morton. The 19-year-old former Nipawin Hawk was named runner up for the Rookie of the Week after posting six assists in six games while also being one of the league's premier shutdown defencemen and throwing around the body to stop opposing teams from entering the zone too easily.

Morton was hurt in his first game as a Klipper and missed a full month of action between the end of November until the beginning of January, but since returning to the action he's become one of the mainstays for the Klippers defensively, using his shot on the second powerplay unit along with smooth hands and skating to get out of his own zone and control the pace of play.
