It's been quite the first impression for recently acquired Rylee Zimmer.
The Portage Terriers forward, acquired last week in a trade with the SJHL's Melville Millionaires, tallied six points (5-1—6) in three games including a hat trick performance against Waywayseecappo en route to claiming the Manitoba Junior Hockey League's Recycle Everywhere Player of the Week honours.
The 6-foot-2, 200 lbs native of Russell, Man., started his junior career with the MJHL's Waywayseecappo Wolverines before heading west to Saskatchewan where he suited up for both Flin Flon and Melville.
