The Selkirk College Men's Hockey program is pleased to announce that forward and team captain Jordan Wood has been named the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League's Player of the Month for November.

Wood scored four goals and added eight assists in six games during the month to lead all BCIHL skaters and maintain his grip on first place in league scoring overall with 12 goals and 26 points respectively. He also helped lead the Saints to six consecutive wins, with the team's victory over the University of Victoria last Saturday tying the Vikes' record for the longest-ever BCIHL winning streak at 12 games.

"Jordan had another tremendous month both in terms of his individual performances and his overall leadership of our group," says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. "It's become clear as we've gotten deeper into the season that opposing teams are putting more and more of a focus on stopping Jordan and his linemates, but they continue to get the job done and set the tone for us. Woody is fully deserving of the award but it could just as easily have been Logan (Proulx) or Jackson (Garrett) based on the great months they had as well."

Wood put up four multi-point games during November, including a two-assist effort against Simon Fraser University on November 3rd that marked Selkirk's first win over the Clan since the Saints joined the BCIHL in 2007.

Selkirk resumes the 2012/13 season following an extended exam/holiday break against SFU on Saturday, January 12th at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. Face-off is set for 7:30 PM.
