A trio of Selkirk College men’s hockey players have been recognized by the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League for tremendous individual performances that have helped the Saints build an 8-0 record and jump into first place in the league standings.

 

 

 

Team captain Jordan Wood has been named the BCIHL’s Player of the Week

for the week ending Nov. 4th after a pair of multi-point games on the

Saints’ recent two-game road trip. On Friday, Wood scored twice and set

up another Selkirk goal as his team won their first-ever road game at

Thompson Rivers University.

 

 

 

One night later he set up a pair of goals by linemates Jackson Garrett

and Logan Proulx as Selkirk won their first-ever game against Simon

Fraser University and ended the Clan’s 25-game regular season home

unbeaten streak. Wood currently leads all BCIHL skaters in goals and

points with 10 goals and 19 points.

 

 

 

"Our games last weekend at TRU and SFU were an opportunity for our guys

to show that they could get the job done against top teams on the road,"

says Jeff Dubois. "You get points from those games by working hard,

winning battles and taking full advantage of the chances that come your

way. Jordan led by example and played two of his best games of the

season, so he’s fully deserving of this recognition."

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Kam Crawford and Alex Sirard were named the BCIHL’s

Defenceman and Goaltender of the Month respectively for their efforts in

helping guide the Saints to a 6-0 record in October.

 

 

 

Crawford was a force at both ends of the ice for the Saints, posting

points in all five games played while also providing Selkirk with

shut-down defence against the opposition’s top lines. The former Merritt

Centennials blueliner scored once and tied for the league-lead with nine

assists.

 

 

 

Sirard picked up wins in all three of his October starts, posting a 1.33

goals-against average and .944 save percentage for the month. He also

collected Selkirk College’s first-ever shutout with 23 saves in an

October 19th victory over TRU.

 

 

 

"Kam and Alex were both outstanding during the month and helped our

group get off to a great start to the regular season," says Dubois.

"There was a lot of attention centred around our offence over the first

few weeks of the season, but we also got the job done defensively

(allowing 11 goals in six games) and both those guys played a

 

substantial role in our success in our own zone."
