Update: The BC Hockey League has announced that due to recently increased provincial restrictions and a spike in COVID-19 cases, the league’s 60th Anniversary All-Star Weekend has been postponed until 2023. Original article below:
The BC Hockey League announced the 40 players that will be participating in its 2022 Top Prospects Game in January, and three Cranbrook Bucks players were included.
Forwards Tyson Dyck, Noah Quinn, and Luke Pfoh have all been nabbed to participate for the Interior Conference at the prospects game, which is being held Friday, Jan. 14 in Penticton.
Dyck, a 2004-born forward from Abbotsford, BC, leads the Bucks in all offensive categories with 17 goals, 17 assists, and 34 points through 24 games this season. In fact, 45% of the Bucks total offense this season has gone through their star rookie.
Dyck was already on his way to Penticton as the Bucks representative in the 2022 BCHL All-Star Game, and will now be joined by his line-mates.
Quinn ranks second on the Bucks with 21 points this season, having tallied nine goals and 12 assists in 23 games. The 2003-born product of Nelson, BC announced his commitment to Bemidji State University last month.
Pfoh is a 16-year-old out of Port Moody, BC who has fit right in with the Bucks this season. He’s tallied five goals and 12 assists for 17 points through 16 games this season.
The three of them have made up Cranbrook’s most productive offensive trio, as they often play together when all healthy, and they were the top three point getters for the Bucks at the time of an injury that caused Pfoh to miss a month of action.
The Top Prospects Game is part of the BCHL’s 60th Anniversary Weekend, which also includes a 3-on-3 All-Star Tournament on an outdoor rink in Penticton.
The prospects game will take place at the South Okanagan Events Centre in front of scouts and coaches from the college and professional ranks.
