The Steinbach Pistons, along with Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries, have selected forward Ty Naaykens as the team’s Player of the Month for October.
The 19-year-old from Winnipeg is in his third MJHL season, and his second year with the Pistons. Naaykens has put together a solid start to the season for Steinbach, leading the team with 3 goals and 9 assists for a team-leading 12 points in the month.
He currently is tied for 4th in the MJHL scoring race to start 2020-21, and is just two points back of the league high. Naaykens was second on the Pistons in scoring a season ago with 23 goals and 55 points in 58 games played, and won the MJHL Playing Ability and Sportsmanship award with only 14 penalty minutes all season long.
