Two members of the Prince Albert Mintos have been rewarded for their play during the 2019-20 Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League season.

Goaltender Joel Favreau and defenceman Chase Friedt-Mohr were both named to the SMAAAHL’s second all-star team, which were announced as part of the league’s award winners on Monday.

Favreau, who made the jump up to the Mintos after playing in the Midget AA ranks with the Prince Albert Dairy Queen Chill, posted an 18-8 record with a 2.19 goals against average and a .920 save percentage.

He also had three shutouts during his rookie campaign, which put him in a tie with Dylan Ernst (Moose Jaw Warriors), Jackson Fellner (Battlefords Stars) and Drayden Ramage (Regina Pat Canadians) for second place in the league.
