Eagles goalie earns BCHL player-of-week award

Surrey native Andrew Hunt honoured after backstopping team to three wins

A busy but successful week between the pipes has landed Surrey Eagles’ netminder Andrew Hunt player-of-the-week honours from the B.C. Hockey League, for the week ending Dec. 18.

Hunt, a 19-year-old Surrey native, was in goal for three of the Eagles’ four wins last week, and was named the game’s first star in two of those games.

Hunt began the week by making 42 saves in Surrey’s 4-1 win over the Powell River Kings, and followed up by allowing just two goals against the Victoria Grizzlies. After giving way to backup Conor Barrie Saturday in a win over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, Hunt was in the crease Sunday against Prince George, stopping 29 shots.

For the week, Hunt has a .961 save-percentage and a 1.33 goals-against average.

In his first season as the Eagles’ starter, Hunt is second among BCHL goalies in wins (16); first in minutes-played; and ranked in the top-10 in both save-percentage and goals-against average.

Hunt’s teammate, forward Sean McGovern, earned a player-of-the-week honourable mention, after tallying three goals and two assists in the four games last week.
