English River Miner Terix Fischer-Kobes Named SIJHL Week 17 Star

The Superior International Junior Hockey League announced Monday January 29th that English River Miners defenceman Terix Fischer-Kobes has been named its Player of the Week for the period ending January 28th.

In three games last week the 20-year-old native of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan had points in each of them, picking up six in total, helping English River earn a trio of victories.

Fischer-Kobes began by notching the game-winning goal in overtime as the Miners won in Dryden over the rival GM Ice Dogs Tuesday.

Friday saw the English Miner blueliner help set-up the difference maker in a triumph vs. Minnesota.

The following evening he racked up a career single-game high four assists, which included a helper on a shorthanded marker that proved to be the winner, as the Miners completed a weekend sweep of the Iron Rangers.

Fischer-Kobes had already set personal bests in goals, assists and points in 2017-18 with three, 18 and 21 respectively.

His offensive totals tie him for fifth among all SIJHL defencemen.

Also earning consideration for player of the week honours was Keighan Gerrie, (F) Thunder Bay North Stars; Parker Simonson, (F) Thief River Falls Norskies; Brett Akins, (G) Fort Frances Lakers; Landon Pavlisin, (G) Dryden GM Ice Dogs and Anthony Beltrame, (D) Minnesota Iron Rangers.
