BCHL grad Alex Newhook continues racking up awards in NCAA Div 1 hockey.
The Victoria Grizzlies alum is the first place since 2016 to win the national rookie and player of the month awards after putting together a statistically superb February with Boston College.
Newhook led all NCAA skaters last month with 20 points, 11 assists, two shorthanded goals and a plus-14 plus/minus rating.
The Newfoundland product registered six multi-point outings in nine games, including a five-point explosion on Feb. 15 in a 6-2 win over Merrimack. Newhook recorded at least one point in all nine outings in February and ended the month riding a 10-game point streak.
Last Saturday, he became the first Boston College rookie since Colin White in 2016 to record 40 points in a single season.
The 2019 Colorado Avalanche first-rounder led the BCHL in scoring with 102 points and was named the league’s MVP last season. In two seasons in Victoria, Newhook amassed 168 points in 98 regular-season games and another 33 in 27 playoff contests.
