The British Columbia Hockey League has given Smoke Eaters goaltender Adam Todd an honourable mention for the Gongshow Gear BCHL Player of the Week.
Todd, an 18 year-old native of Courtenay, BC, posted two wins last week against Merritt and Penticton, recording a .939 save percentage and 2.31 goals-against average. He was named first star in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over the Centennials.
Since joining the Smoke Eaters from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in October, Todd has a record of 10-4, including a shutout Jan. 25 at Nanaimo. Eight of Todd’s 10 victories in a Smoke Eater uniform have come at Cominco Arena, where he holds an 8-1 record.
“Adam’s been real steady for us in goal since the holiday break,” said Smoke Eater coach Bill Birks. “He’s earned the right to start most of our recent games due to a strong work ethic and positive results and is a big reason we’re still in the hunt for a playoff spot.”
