Saints’ rookie centre picks up honourable mention for player of the week

first-year centre Logan Proulx has been named an Honourable Mention for the Player of the Week award.

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 12:00 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,” says 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 PM.

Tickets for Friday and Saturday’s games will be available at the door

for $8 (Adults) and $5 (Selkirk students & staff, seniors, children 6 &

older) and season passes will also be available. For more information on

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.
