For Immediate Release
December 16, 2021
Saanichton, B.C. – Each month the BCEHL will honour one player from each of the four leagues as the BCEHL Player of the Month for their respective league. This award is not based strictly on statistics. Every team has the opportunity to nominate an individual from their team to be considered for the monthly award. Team staff factor in the player’s on-and-off ice contributions towards the team as well as their involvement within the community and minor hockey mentorship.

Female U18 AAA

#2 Brooklyn Hutchings
Northern Capitals
Prince George, BC
Brooklyn recorded 12 points (7g-5a) in seven games throughout the month of November. She also leads the Female U18 AAA league in points. Statistics aside, Brooklyn is extremely involved with the Prince George Minor Hockey Program. She spends much of her time mentoring younger players in the program at the U13 and U15 age divisions.
She is a leader both on and off the ice and always shows consistency and effort in every game and practice. She added to an impressive month of November by winning gold at the 2021 Western Regional Women's U18 Championship with Team BC.


#35 Tysen Smith
Cariboo Cougars
Prince George, BC
Tysen Smith has always been very involved in the community, and this was evident throughout the month of November. He took part in the Cougars' ongoing Salvation Army Kettle Bells campaign in November and through to December. He also helps mentor young goalies in the Prince George Minor Hockey program.
The goaltender is a great example of a hard worker who has climbed the ranks and is a true representation of what it means to be a Cariboo Cougar. He helped his team to two wins in just three games with an impressive 1.62 GAA in November.


#74 Jordan Wales
Valley West Giants
Delta, BC
Jordan Wales goes above and beyond to help his younger brother's team in the North Delta Minor Hockey Association. His volunteer involvement stretches outside of hockey as well as he helped organize the Terry Fox Run for his school and volunteering as a referee for his school's volleyball games.
Not only is Wales a great volunteer, he is also an impressive player, scoring 12 points (3g-9a) in the month of November and helping his team to back-to-back weekend sweeps of the Vancouver NE Chiefs and the Greater Vancouver Canadians.


#22 Lucas McDonald
Vancouver NE Chiefs
New Westminster, BC
Lucas McDonald has been a strong representative of what it means to be a Chief throughout the month of November. He went above and beyond this month to assist the Chiefs' program with brainstorming how they could honour Remembrance Day properly on their social media channels.
McDonald is a leader both on and off the ice and his impact goes further than just the points he puts on the board. He is a solid player who plays a true two-way game, but he also helps teammates with homework while on the road, helps pack the bus without being asked, and really helped the Chiefs get through a historic 10-day road trip.
