Logan Foster’s productive 20-year-old-campaign kicked up another notch in January.

Foster has been named the SJHL’s Player of the Month for the month of January, joining only Yorkton’s Chantz Petruic, who won it three consecutive months prior, as the two players to receive the nod this season.

Foster’s production has been elite all year long, and that didn’t let up in January. He led the way for the Broncos with 19 points (9g, 10a) in 12 games played this past month. In total, Foster’s team-leading 62 points sit 5th in the league, and his 27 goals has him in a 4th place tie in the SJHL.

The 2nd year Bronco has hit a few milestones in his final season of junior hockey. He played his 100th career SJHL game at the start of the season, picked up his 100th career SJHL point and 50th career goal this year, and is a dozen points away from doubling his point total from last year.

The Broncos will hope for Foster’s electric pace to continue, as they find themselves in a highly congested SJHL playoff race. Although the Broncos do have some security sitting 9 points above the playoff line, they are only 4 points back of 3rd place Yorkton, while 3 points back of 4th place Melfort, 5th place Nipawin, and 6th place La Ronge who are all tied with 55 points.

Foster’s January production has already transferred into February with two points in his first game. He’ll look to continue that when the Broncos travel to Kindersley to face the Klippers on Tuesday, February 4th.
