Surrey resident Kirk Thompson has picked up a weekly honour from the BC Hockey League.

The 20-year-old goaltender, a Major Midget League’s Valley West Hawks’ alum, was named the league’s player of the week last week, for his performance in games between Oct. 7 and Oct. 14.

Thompson led the Spruce Kings to a pair of wins, allowing just one goal. He earned a win over the Powell River Kings and followed that with his second career BCHL shutout – stopping 38 shots on net in a 3-0 win over the Surrey Eagles Oct. 13.

He is currently tied for first in the league with nine wins.
