Selkirk Saints – Edwards commits

Nitehawks' Ryan Edwards will play for the Saints in the 2014-2015 BCIHL season.

The Selkirk College Saints announced the committment of Beaver Valley Nitehawks forward Ryan Edwards to play for the Saints in the 2014-15 BCIHL season.

Edwards is a six-foot-two, 190-pound centre, completing his fourth and final season of junior hockey with the Nitehawks. Edwards led Beaver Valley in scoring this season with 31 goals and 84 points in 50 regular season games, with his points total good for fourth overall in the KIJHL.

The 20-year old has also played a key role in the Nitehawks’ run to the 2014 League Finals, as his 13 goals and 30 points through three playoff rounds lead all KIJHL skaters.

Overall, Edwards places fourth on the KIJHL’s career scoring leaderboard with 96 goals and 249 points in 171 career games. He has added another 91 points in 61 playoff games.

“We’re thrilled to be adding another top local player in Ryan,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “His offensive production in the KIJHL speaks for itself, and he’s also proven himself as a very capable two-way player and penalty killer whose size and strength bring an added dimension beyond his scoring and playmaking abilities. I see Ryan being a valuable addition to our team who can make substantial contributions as a first-year player in our league next season.”

Edwards has also spent time in the BCHL with the Trail Smoke Eaters and Vernon Vipers, scoring three times and totaling nine points in 19 games during the 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons.
