BCIHL: Trail native Logan Proulx nets PoW

Selkirk College forward Logan Proulx was named the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League’s Player of the Week on Monday.

The Trail native and former Smoke Eater captain led the Saints to a pair of wins against the University of Victoria and Eastern Washington, totalling seven points for the weekend.

On Friday, Proulx scored a first-period marker and set up goals from Jackson Garrett, Connor McLaughlin and Cody Fidgett to complete a four-point night in a 7-0 shutout win over the Vikes.

And on Saturday, the Saints captain scored on a first period breakaway and set up McLaughlin and Fidgett once again in a 6-4 victory on the road at EWU.

Proulx’s season-long point streak now stands at 19 games, and the 22-year old sits third in league scoring with 38 points.

Selkirk’s Beau Taylor was also named Player of the Month on Tuesday. The Aussie forward scored five times and picked up nine points in a trio of Selkirk wins last month.

The Australian scored his first in a win over TRU before posting eight points in back-to-back wins over EWU. On January 25th, Taylor posted a hat trick with goals at even strength, on the power-play and shorthanded while setting a career-high with five points.
