The Grandview Steelers and Chilliwack Jets emerged from the PJHL’s Survivor Series round; here are the stars that shone brightest.
Kaidan Johnson, F, Grandview Steelers – Johnson had just one assist through the first two games of the Steelers’ best-of-three against North Van but saved the heroics for when they were needed most as he set up the tying goal and then scored the series winner in double-overtime in a 4-3 win over the Wolf Pack. Johnson took 1st Star in the series clincher and finds himself and his team now in a best-of-seven against Delta.
Bronson Babyak, F, Chilliwack Jets – With three goals, including a double-OT winner, and three assists in two wins over Surrey, Babyak was an easy call for POW this week. The native of Saskatoon, scored twice in the opener with the aforementioned tally at 1:22 of the second overtime to take 1st Star in a 4-3 victory. He then authored a goal and three helpers in the convincing 9-0 win in Game 2.
Shayan Kermany, G, Grandview Steelers – Playing every minute of the best-of-three against North Van, Kermany was kept busy as he faced 156 shots over 207 minutes and 59 seconds, giving the Steelers the last line of defence they needed to come out on top. Kermany was 2nd Star with 43 stops in the series-clinching game but made his most saves, 57, in the 4-2 road loss at North Van. He posted a .936 save percentage in the Survivor Series.
