Trail Smoke Eater forward Brent Baltus’ excellent season was not overlooked by the league, as the BCHL released its Allstar team selections for the 2012-13 season.
A poll of BCHL coaches selected the 20-year-old Nanaimo native to the Interior division’s second allstar team.
Baltus led the team in scoring, netting 24 goals and 51 points in 46 games for the Smokies this season. He also leads the team in short-handed goals with two.
“Brent’s been a model of consistency and a real leader since arriving in Trail,” stated Smoke Eaters head coach and general manager Bill Birks.
“This honour is a testament to his hard work with our program and I’m thrilled to see him named an all-star by the BCHL.”
