Chilliwack Chiefs prospects earn all-star nods from B.C. Major Midget Hockey League

Goalie Dawson Pelletier and forward Tyler Cristall were recognized for outstanding seasons.

Hope native and Chilliwack Chiefs affiliate player Dawson Pelletier has been named to the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League all-star team.

The 17 year old netminder posted a minuscule 2.29 goals-against average in 22 appearances with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds and backstopped his team to the league final before they fell to the Cariboo Cougars.

Pelletier also spent time with the BCHL’s Chiefs.

He got into one game, Sept. 30 on the road at Victoria, playing 12:51 in relief of starter Mathieu Caron and giving up one goal on 10 shots.

Tyler Cristall is the other BCMMHL all-star with ties to the Chiefs.

The 16 year old forward finished second in league scoring with 63 points (32 goals) in 39 games and saw junior A action in two games with Chilliwack.

Other BCMMHL all-stars were defencemen Graham Sward (Fraser Valley Thunderbirds) and James Bohn (Vancouver North East Chiefs) and forwards Zackary Funk (Fraser Valley Thunderbirds) and Logan Stankoven (Thompson Blazers).

Stankoven was named Player of the Year after posting an insane 101 points (49 goals) in 38 games.

The 15 year old Kamloops native is only the third player in league history to do that, joining New York Islanders star Mathew Barzal (2012-13) and Montreal Canadiens forward Jordan Weal (2007-08).
