BCHL extra: Skaters earn accolades for energy

The BCHL crowned regular season and playoff standouts who collected the most Fortis BC Energy Player of the Game selections.

Prince George Spruce Kings defenceman Trevor Esau and West Kelowna Warriors forward Max French are the first-ever recipients of the BCHL’s FortisBC Energy Player of the Year honours.

Esau, the PG captain and veteran of 159 junior A games with the Spruce Kings, earned 11 FortisBC Energy Player of the Game nods through 51 regular season games.

French, the West Kelowna captain and veteran of 193 games with the Warriors, earned four FortisBC Energy Player of the Game nods in 10 playoff games as his team advanced to the Interior Conference finals.

The FortisBC Energy Player of the Game program came online last year, recognizing players who provided a spark for their team through hard work or physical play.

The Chilliwack Chiefs playoff leader was Mathieu Tibbett, who was selected two times in eight postseason games.
