The 18-year-old Edmonton native notched his first goal of the week in a 4-2 loss to the Camrose Kodiaks on Oct. 22.

He got another point with an assist in a 5-3 loss to Okotoks on Friday, then exploded for five points in a 7-1 victory over the Calgary Canucks on Saturday night.

Rawji scored a hat trick and added two assists to earn the Viterra AJHL Star of the Game award.

Since being acquired from the Sherwood Park Crusaders via a trade on Oct. 1, Rawji has racked up 15 points (six goals, nine assists) and leads the team in scoring with 16 points (six goals, 10 assists).

The Alberta Ford Dealers AJHL defensive player of the week is defenceman Kabore Dunn of the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. The 17 year-old rookie obtained five points in four games; the most points of all AJHL defencemen last week.
