MacBurnie named Player of the Week

Trail Smoke Eaters goaltender named PoW after stoning the Nanaimo Clippers on Friday and the Merritt Centennials the next night.

Trail Smoke Eaters goaltender Bailey MacBurnie was named the BCHL Player of the Week after stoning the Nanaimo Clippers on Friday and the Merritt Centennials the next night.

MacBurnie backstopped the Smokies to wins in both games last week and was a game star in each contest.

The product of Beverly, Massachusetts stopped 47 shots and took second star in a 6-1 Trail win over visiting Nanaimo and turned aside 34 shots the next night for first star on the road as Trail downed Merritt 3-2.

Over the two games, MacBurnie had a .964 save percentage to go along with a 1.50 goals-against average.

The Smoke Eaters played the Penticton Vees on Tuesday night at the Cominco Arena but due to the Remembrance Day holiday a game summary won’t be available until Friday. Trail hosts the Cowichan Valley Capitals on Friday night with the puck drop at 7:30 p.m. and the Victoria Grizzlies on Sunday with a 3 p.m. start.
