Norman Northstars forward Brady Krentz was named the Manitoba U18 AAA Hockey League Chicken Chef player of the week for the second time this season after a six point-weekend against the Pembina Valley Hawks Jan. 8-9.

The 17-year-old, who is currently fifth in league scoring, was involved in all but one of his team’s goals over the two games, scoring two goals and setting up another in a 5-4 overtime loss on Saturday and recording two assists and a goal in a 4-3 loss on Sunday.
