Bruins sniper snubbed again

  • Mar. 18, 2010 12:00 p.m.

A 47 goal campaign wasn’t enough to land Chilliwack’s Ryan Howse on a post-season all-star team.

The Western conference first and second all-star squads were announcedThursday morning, and the 18-year-old was nowhere to be seen, despite leading the conference in goals.

The first-team forwards were Craig Cunningham of the Vancouver Giants and Spokane Chiefs teammates Mitch Wahl and Kyle Beach.

Cunningham was a unanimous selection, and it’s difficult to argue against those three. But the forwards on the second team are certainly disputable.

Seattle’s Prab Rai got the nod over Howse despite playing on a last place team.

Rookie Nino Niederreiter (Portland) got the nod in his first season despite losing to Kelowna’s Shane McColgan as rookie of the year.
