For second straight week Selkirk player earns league recognition
The Selkirk College Saints Men’s Hockey program is pleased to announce that first-year centre Logan Proulx has been named an Honourable Mention for the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League's Player of the Week award.
The 21-year old continued his hot start to the 2012/13 BCIHL regular season on Friday in the Saints' home opener, scoring a goal and adding a
pair of assists in his team's 6-1 victory over Trinity Western University.
He opened the scoring at the 12 minute mark of the first period
on a Selkirk power-play and helped set up another man-advantage tally
less than three minutes later.
Then, with the Saints up a pair midway through the second period, he sent team captain Jordan Wood in alone on TWU starter Harry Fredeman. Wood made no mistake to extend the home lead to 4-1 and earn Proulx his third point of the game and first-star honours.
The Trail, B.C. product leads the Saints in scoring through three regular season games with six points (two goals, four assists).
Those totals are also good for second in the BCIHL behind Player of the Week winner Ben Van Lare.
"Logan's had an excellent start to the season and made big contributions
at both ends of the ice," said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.
"He's formed a productive partnership with his linemates (Wood and former BCHL, 50-point winger Jackson Garrett) and been named an assistant captain on account of his strong leadership skills."
The Saints return to home ice at the Castlegar Recreation Complex on
Friday in a battle of unbeaten teams when Thompson Rivers University
(Kamloops, B.C.) visits for the first of two weekend games.
Faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

SAINTS NOTES: This is the second consecutive week that a Selkirk player
was tabbed as an Honourable Mention for BCIHL Player of the Week. Defenceman Lucas Hildrebrand was recognized last week after his OT goal lifted the Saints to a win over the University of Victoria.
