Chilliwack Chief Cooper Moore gets BCHL all-rookie team selection

The junior A circuit revealed all-rookie selections along with first and second team all-stars.

The Chilliwack Chiefs were shut out as far as 2019-20 BCHL all-stars are concerned, but the junior A club has landed a player on the all-rookie team.

Defenceman Cooper Moore gets the nod after producing 12 goals – tops among all BCHL rookie D – and 33 points in 55 games.

The Detroit Red Wings draft pick led the Chiefs in goals, assists and points from the blueline, and developed his all-around game as he prepares to jump to NCAA hockey and the University of North Dakota next season.

Moore is paired with West Kelowna’s Nick Ardanez on the all-rookie blueline. All-rookie forwards are Coquitlam’s Greg Lapointe, Victoria’s Cody Monds and West K’s John Evans and the goalie is Trail’s Logan Terness.

Lapointe got chosen in the vote by the league’s 17 broadcasters even though the league’s coaches voted Chilliwack’s Nikita Nesterenko the top rookie in the Mainland division.

Chilliwack’s Clay Stevenson snagged a first-team all-star selection, locking down the goaltender spot after producing 30 wins, a 936 save percentage and 1.77 goals-against average for the league-best Coquitlam Express.

Cowichan Valley’s Dimitri Mikrogiannakis and Salmon Arm’s Akito Hirose are the first-team all-star defencemen while Trail’s Kent Johnston, Surrey’s Cristophe Tellier and Penticton’s Jay O’Brien lock down forward spots.

The second-team all-star forwards are Coquitlam’s Lapointe along with Trail’s Philippe Lapointe and Trail’s Owen Ozar.

The defenders are Langley’s Jake Livingstone and Coquitlam’s Drew Cooper and the netminder is Trail’s Terness.
