Trail native Loggan Proulx leads Selkirk College Saints

Trail native Logan Proulx is having a banner year with the Selkirk College Saints men’s hockey team.

Trail native Logan Proulx is having a banner year with the Selkirk College Saints men’s hockey team as the Saints’ captain counted four helpers in a 10-1 drubbing of Eastern Washington University at the Castlegar Rec Complex Friday.

It was the biggest output of the year for the former Trail Smoke Eater captain, who has counted a point in each of the team’s 13 games this year, making his scoring streak and 20 assists tops in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League this season. Proulx currently sits in a tie for second place in overall league scoring with 26 points.

The Saints scored early and often during a game where they out-shot their opponents by a margin of 55-13.

Another former Smoke Eater, Darnell Dyck opened the scoring for Selkirk less than three minutes into the first period when he stole the puck from an EWU defender and beat Eagles starter Jason Greenwell with a quick wrist shot from the low slot.

And the Saints piled on from there as Thomas Hardy, Cody Fidgett and Dylan Smith all scored to build a 4-0 lead by intermission.

“Our starts at home have been very good all season and tonight may have been the best yet,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois in a release. “We set the tone with our speed and energy and took control of the game very early. All four lines were rolling and were rewarded with goals, and we got some good offensive contributions from our blueline as well.”

Connor McLaughlin and Fidgett extended the Saints’ lead to six midway through the second before Tyler Mort put Eastern on the board off an odd-man rush. But Jackson Garrett replied minutes later to re-establish Selkirk’s six-goal lead.

Hardy and Smith each notched their second goals of the night in the third period before Fidgett capped the scoring with the hat-trick and league-leading 18th goal late in the contest.

“We weren’t pleased with our results in Victoria last weekend, but tonight was a very positive way to close out the first half of the season,” added Dubois.

The Saints split a pair of road games with the last place University of Victoria Vikings the previous weekend, losing 5-4 in the first match, before eking out a 6-5 overtime win in the second game.

The Saints now take an extended exam and holiday break through December and will return to the ice the week of Jan. 6. The team’s next game comes on Jan. 12 when North Dakota-based Williston State University visits Castlegar for an exhibition meeting.

Selkirk’s regular season schedule resumes on Jan. 17 with a visit to Thompson Rivers University.

Friday’s win coupled with a Simon Fraser University loss on Saturday assures the Saints of at least a share of first place heading into the break.

The squad currently sits atop the BCIHL standings with a 10-3-0 record, two points ahead of Thompson Rivers University and four points ahead of SFU.
