BCHL extra: Junior A circuit looks for best of the decades

The BCHL is asking fans to decide who the single best player was from five different decades of the junior A hockey circuit's history.

In October and November, junior A hockey fans voted by the thousands, helping to  name the top 50 players in the BCHL’s 50 year history.

Now, the league is asking for more votes to name the top ‘Player of the Decade’ from each of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.

From today until the end of the regular season, fans can vote online at www.bchl.ca by clicking on the ‘VOTE HERE’ graphic.

Fans must check one name per decade to submit their ballot.

“We had a great response to our first round of voting leading into our celebration weekend back in November,” said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis. “Now, we’re looking to narrow it down a little further. Hopefully we get another great show of participation from fans as we honour past players.”

The BCHL regular season ends Mar. 11.

The list of five names will be unveiled on the first night of the playoffs on  Mar. 16.
