Dallas Calvin doubles up on BCIHL honours

Trail native and Selkirk College Saints forward earns BCIHL Player of the Week and Month honours

Selkirk College Saints forward and Trail native Dallas Calvin was named the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League’s Grad of the Month for November on Tuesday.

The accolade comes a day after Calvin received the ‘Anything Branded’ Player of the Week honour for the second time this season, and it’s no wonder given the prolific playmaker’s success as a Saint on the ice.

The former Trail Smoke Eater and Beaver Valley Nitehawk has picked up points in all 14 games this season, with an average of 2.1 points per game. He scored four goals and collected nine assists in eight games in the month of November to maintain top spot in league scoring with 10 goals and 20 assists.

“It’s a lot of hard work and not just from myself but from my teammates and everyone else,” said Calvin on Inside the BCHL. “Being surrounded by a good group of guys, obviously having good linemate to play with, everything’s kind of gone in my favour this year. I just have to keep working hard and hope the success continues.”

The 23-year old has a commanding lead on his competition. His 30 points are 13 more than the league’s next highest scorer, and his 20 assists alone trump all other skaters’ point totals.

Calvin dressed in 32 regular season games for the Smoke Eaters during the 2014-15 campaign, scoring 16 times and picking up 29 assists. His 1.41 points per game average was sixth best in the BCHL that season. He committed to Selkirk College at the conclusion of the season and won a BCIHL championship with the Saints as a rookie in 2016.

Calvin also played four seasons with the Nitehawks, scoring 122 goals and 273 points in 165 games, and led the team to a Keystone Cup championship in 2014.
