O’Brien led the Royals to two showcase victories: a 9-0 victory over the New Jersey Rockets, avenging their only loss of the season, and a 7-1 victory over the New Jersey Renegades.

“Keith is the perfect team captain who always gives 100 percent on and off the ice,” commented Royals head coach Ken Hoey. “He is one of those players that has natural hockey sense. He scores, as well as, sets up others, and does it without hesitation.”
Justin Geigel was selected as the third star of the week by the MJHL for the period ending Oct. 18th.
