North Star Keighan Gerrie Named SIJHL Week 16 Star

The Superior International Junior Hockey League announced Monday January 22nd that Thunder Bay North Stars rookie forward Keighan Gerrie has been named its Player of the Week for the period ending January 21st.

In a pair of outings last week the 16-year-old Thunder Bay product and youngest player in the SIJHL picked up two points in each of them helping the North Stars skate to a couple of victories.

Gerrie began by tallying twice in a triumph vs. the Minnesota Iron Rangers Wednesday before finishing up with another goal along with an assist in a road decision over the Fort Frances Lakers Saturday.

A point-per-game player in the SIJHL, Gerrie leads all first-year skaters in offensive production with 32 in as many outings on 14 markers and 18 helpers.

Four of his 10 power play points have been goals and he also has two game-winning efforts to his credit.
