The Selkirk College Saints’ wave of success continues to roll as the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League announced that Saints’ forward Jordan Wood was awarded Player of the Week honours for the second time this season.
Wood led all BCIHL scorers last week with four goals and seven points, and helped the Saints to a 5-4 overtime win against Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and a 5-2 victory over Simon Fraser University on home ice in Castlegar.
Wood leads the BCIHL in goals and points with 19 and 37 respectively. Linemate and Trail native Logan Proulx sits third with 30 points, while Selkirk blueliner Kam Crawford leads all BCIHL defencemen with 20 points.
The Saints look to complete a five-game regular season sweep of the University of Victoria, while inching closer to the team’s first BCIHL regular season title on Saturday, when the defending league champions visit the Castlegar Rec Complex.
Selkirk is five points clear of second-place SFU and needs seven points from their seven remaining games in order to clinch top spot and home-ice advantage through the postseason.
“UVic is coming off a big win last weekend (7-0 over Trinity Western) and they’re obviously in the middle of a big playoff race,” says Selkirk head coach Jeff Dubois. “They always compete and bring a complete effort, and they’ve given us some of our toughest games this season.”
Tickets for Friday’s games will be available at the door for $8 Adults and $5 Selkirk students and staff, seniors, children 6 and older.
