Chilliwack Chief forward recognized for hard-hitting play

Linden Hora was Chilliwack’s most physical force in the 2016-17 BCHL post-season.

The BCHL has tallied up the Energy Player of the Year nominations, and Linden Hora is a winner.

The aggitating winger, who just wrapped up his junior A career, earned more energy nods in the playoffs (five) than anyone else. The Kelowna native played 23 postseason games as his Chilliwack Chiefs marched all the way to game seven of the Fred Page Cup Finals.

Hora notched five goals and eight points in the playoffs after posting eight goals and 17 points in 51 regular season outings.

Colin Burston of the Wenatchee Wild and Zac Masson of the Langley Rivermen tied for the regular-season Energy Player lead with 12 nods apiece.
