For the second time this season, Selkirk College Men's Hockey captain Jordan Wood has been selected as the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League's Player of the Week. Wood led all BCIHL scorers last week with four goals and seven points, and helped the Saints to wins over Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and Simon Fraser University on home ice in Castlegar.

On Friday, Wood scored shorthanded late in the first period and assisted on three other goals, including Kam Crawford's overtime winner, to lead Selkirk to a 5-4 overtime win against the WolfPack. And one night later, with the Saints and SFU tied at 2-2 late in the third period, Wood scored a natural hat trick in the final 6:43 of regulation to propel his team to a 5-2 victory. The 22-year old leads all BCIHL scorers with 19 goals and 37 points on the season and currently holds a six-point lead over SFU's Ben Van Lare in his bid for the league scoring title.

Honourable mentions for the weekly award included Shawn Mueller (University of Victoria), Nick Babich (University of Victoria) and Nick Sandor (Simon Fraser University).

Wood and the Saints (16-1-0) currently hold a five-point lead over SFU (13-4-1) for top spot in the league standings. The team's magic number to clinch their first-ever BCIHL regular season title currently sits at 7 points.

Selkirk hosts the University of Victoria on Saturday night at the Castlegar Rec Complex. Faceoff is set for 7:30 PM.
