The Selkirk College Men’s Hockey program is pleased to announce that Saints defenceman Dylan Smith has been named the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League’s Player of the Week for the week ending October 21st.
Smith’s offensive production and playmaking ability helped lead the
Saints to a weekend sweep of Thompson Rivers University. On Friday, the
21-year old scored twice and collected six points in an 11-0 Selkirk
victory and was named the game’s second star.
Smith assisted on Jordan Wood’s goal to open the scoring and then fired
home from the point later in the first period to extend his team’s lead.
He went on to set up second period tallies off the rush by Cody Fidgett
and Ben Stabuck and was credited with his second goal of the game in the
third when a TRU player accidentally poked the puck into his own net.
One night later, Smith opened the scoring just 23 seconds into
regulation and picked up helpers on power-play goals by Kam Crawford and
Mason Spear to complete a three-point performance. He was named the
game’s third star following Saturday’s 8-1 win.
Smith now leads all BCIHL scorers with 12 points on four goals and eight
assists. Through five regular season outings he has picked up three or
more points three times.
Runners up for this week’s award include Trinity Western University
goaltender Harry Fredeman, Selkirk College forward Jordan Wood and Simon
Fraser University defenceman Bruin McDonald.
