Wenger had a big week to take home the award as he had two goals and an assist in a win on January 12th against Cleveland Heights.
Going into the competition this past week he had 15 goals and six assists this season for the Bombers, who sit in first in the GCHSHL Red Division standings.
Wenger, who roots for the Pittsburgh Penguins and lists ‘Billy Madison’ as his favorite movie, has been a big reason for the Bombers success this past season.
