Former Eagle Blacklock named BCHL player of week
One week after Surrey Eagles forward Adam Tambellini was named BC Hockey League Player of the Week, the player he was traded for earned the same award.
Vernon Vipers’ Mason Blacklock – a Peninsula native and Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum – helped the Vipers to a pair of wins last week.
First, he scored the winning goal and added three assists in a 6-4 win over the Nanaimo Clippers, and he followed up that performance with a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over the Cowichan Valley Capitals.
Blacklock, 18, was named the first star in both games, and is currently the Vipers’ leading scorer, with 11 goals and 23 points in 38 games.
Former Surrey Eagles captain Tyler Morley was honoured last week, as well, being named the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's rookie of the week.
Morley, who plays for the NCAA's University of Alaska Nanooks, had a goal and two assists in a two-game road sweep of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
The Burnaby native, who played four seasons for the Eagles, is third in scoring for the Nanooks, with eight goals and 14 points.
