A pair of Bomber players were named as part of the SJHL's players of the month for November.

Justin Lies and Harmon Laser-Hume received the honours for their play during the month. Lies was named the SJHL's forward of the month, while Laser-Hume was named the league's top goalie for November.

No SJHL player scored points at a pace like Lies did in November, putting home 21 points in just eight games, including 12 goals. The SJHL's leading point-getter and goal-scorer has 46 points in 25 games, scoring 22 times.

Even SJHL MVP of the month Kian Bell of the Battlefords North Stars, who now sits second in SJHL scoring, scored at a lower rate than Lies did, having had 27 points and 11 goals in 11 games. If rates held up, Lies would have had around 16 goals and 29 points had he played as many November games as Bell.

Laser-Hume went undefeated in November, winning all seven of his starts and giving up just 12 goals on 220 shots throughout the month, sporting a staggering .945 save percentage during the month.

Except for the first game of the month, a 5-4 win over Melfort, Laser-Hume did not give up more than two goals in a game for the rest of November. Laser-Hume has not lost a game since the team's sole regulation loss of the season, an Oct. 28 defeat to Melville.

Elsewhere in the league, Stars defender Alex Izyk was named the league's defenceman of the month after a 16 point-in-12 game month, while Keenan Ingram of the Kindersley Klippers won rookie of the month honours with 18 points in 11 games. The SJHL's Saskatchewan player of the month was Warman's Spencer Bell, who had 20 points in 10 games for Humboldt.
