Former Smokie gets PoW nod

Former Trail Smoke Eaters forward Scott Jacklin has earned a share of the Atlantic Hockey player of the week honours.

In the wake of a huge offensive weekend with Robert Morris University, former Trail Smoke Eaters forward Scott Jacklin has earned a share of the Atlantic Hockey player of the week honours.

His linemate Cody Wydo was the other co-recipient. The duo combined for 13 points on the weekend as the Colonials swept conference foe American International.

Jacklin had the most productive two-game showing of any RMU player this season with two goals and five assists. The Kimberley product tied a program record with five points (1G, 4A) in Saturday’s 9-4 win. Wydo also tied the single-game record with a hat trick and two helpers. Jacklin produced a goal and an assist in the previous night’s game, a 5-3 victory. He has 10 goals and 22 points in 24 games this season, and is third in RMU scoring.

With the Cowichan Valley Capitals and Trail Smoke Eaters over four BCHL seasons, Jacklin totaled 65 goals and 129 assists for 194 points in 209 career games. His best season came in his final year with the Smoke Eaters as a 20-year-old. Jacklin led the Smokies, racking up 73 points, with 23 goals and 50 assists in 51 games, surpassing the previous years output of 24-45-69 in 60 matches.
