The native of Lloydminster, Alta., led the Bulldogs in playoff scoring with nine goals, 10 assists and eight penalty minutes in 13 games. Alberni Valley fell four games to three to the Powell River Kings in their first appearance in the conference final.
The 6-3, 205-pound forward played the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons for the AJHL’s Lloydminster Bobcats.
