(WDAZ-TV) - It seems appropriate on tournament week that our Taco John's Player of the Week is a hockey player.

Jaiden Hansen is a senior forward on the Grand Forks KnightRiders, the combined Central and Red River girls hockey team.

In the final three games of the regular season, Hansen had a huge week.

She scored a total of five goals and four assists, including a hat trick in Saturday's season finale in Bismarck.

Hansen helped the KnightRiders to three wins and the third seed at state.

Grand Forks plays Bismarck in Thursday's 7:30 p.m. quarterfinal at Engelstad Olympic Arena.
