A few days after being named Defenceman of the Week, Humboldt's Josh Patrician has picked up another accolade as he was awarded the SJHL's Defensemen of the Month for the month of January.

The 20-year-old d-man scooped up 1G to go along with 9A, accumulating points in 6 of the 10 January games, including 3 multi-point nights. The Broncos went 7-3 throughout those ten games to keep pace in the intense Ag Risk division standings.

Another asset that Patrician has been producing throughout the entire season is his ability to quarterback the top of the zone on the powerplay. The powerplay hasn't been a bright spot all season for the Broncos, but when it does shine, it's often Patrician factoring in. The Broncos entered the month of January with the 2nd worst powerplay in the league sitting at 14.9%. They have since gone 8 for 35, for a 22.5% success rate during the opening month of 2019. Patrician has picked up a point on 5 of those 8 goals. His 19 powerplay assists sit tied for 3rd in the league among all skaters.

The Broncos are going to need the same production out of Patrician, who will look to work off his impressive January when the Broncos move into the final 11 games on the season, starting on February 6th against the Notre Dame Hounds.
