SUDBURY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced its latest 3 Stars of the week and earning laurels for the period ending Jan. 19 were Kirkland Lake Gold Miners defenceman Jeremy Picard-Fiset, Soo Thunderbirds forward Gavin Burbach and Blind River Beavers goaltender Dylan Knox.

JEREMY PICARD-FISET, (D) KIRKLAND LAKE GOLD MINERS – In two games during the week that was the 19-year-old Barraute, Que., product registered five points helping the Gold Miners skate to a pair of victories.

Picard-Fiset began by tallying twice and setting up another in a 5-0 shutout over Blind River on Friday at The Joe.

One night later on home ice again he scored once more and picked up an assist as Kirkland Lake skated past North Bay 6-1.

On the season the Gold Miners’ D-man tops all NOJHL blueliners in offensive production with 34 points on seven goals and 27 helpers.

GAVIN BURBACH, (F) SOO THUNDERBIRDS – In Sault Ste. Marie’s only contest of the week Burbach scored two times, including the game-winner while his club was shorthanded, and added a helper as the Thunderbirds stormed back from an early two-goal deficit to double up Sudbury 6-3 and win their franchise-record 18th game in a row.

His three-point night also allowed Burbach to take over the NOJHL scoring lead with 64 points in 42 outings and move into a share for top spot in goals overall with 32.

The veteran forward who hails from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., also has points in five straight and 16 of his past 19 games.

On the 2013-14 campaign Burbach has 18 multi-point nights to his credit with the T-Birds coming away victorious in each of them.

DYLAN KNOX, (G) BLIND RIVER BEAVERS – In his lone start last week Knox came up big on the road keeping his side in the game as Blind River rallied for a 6-4 come from behind victory vs. Abitibi at Jus Jordan Arena helping the Beavers put an end to a 15-game winless drought.

In all the 20-year-old native of Plantation, Florida made 33 saves on the night, including 15 in the third period alone, as Blind River rallied to upend the Eskimos.
