📸: Cranbrook Bucks

The Cranbrook Bucks enjoyed a decent road trip over the weekend, going 2-1-0 on their three-game tour through Merritt, West Kelowna, and Penticton.

It started with a 4-0 win against the Centennials on Friday, followed by a 6-3 win against the Warriors on Saturday, and then a 5-4 loss to the Vees on Sunday.

The Bucks received a number of standout personal performances while enjoying some team success on the weekend.

Here are the best of the best in the Bucks three stars of the week!

First Star — Noah Quinn

Not only is forward Noah Quinn the Bucks first star of the week, he was also recognized as the BC Hockey League’s third star of the week.

Quinn entered the week on a six-game point streak, and recorded eight points during the team’s three games to reach nine consecutive contests with a point.

He’s now totalled 21 goals and 23 assists for 44 points through 42 games this season.

Quinn’s sensational week landed him in the Bucks record book in a couple of different ways — which you can read more about here.

Second Star — Liam Hansson

Forward Liam Hansson matched Quinn with a pair of assists on Friday, then picked up a goal and an assist on Saturday.

He scored again on Sunday in Penticton to finish the week with two goals and five points.

Hansson now has six goals and 26 points in 41 games this season.

Third Star — Tyson Dyck

Leading-scorer Tyson Dyck had another outstanding week creating offense and contributing to the team’s success.

Dyck picked up five assists in the three games over the weekend.

The forward now has 25 goals, 31 assists, and 56 points through 43 contests this season.

Unsung Hero of the Week

A familiar face as the unsung hero of the week is forward Jarrod Smith.

Although failing to find the scoresheet over the weekend, Smith was once again a valuable piece to the puzzle.

Playing special teams, taking face-offs, and using his speed and skill were things that didn’t go unnoticed — despite not landing him in the boxscore.

Honourable Mentions

The Bucks got some great production from their blueline, as Declan Ride, Cam Kungle, and Quaid Anderson all chipped in multi-point weekends.

Ride tallied one goal and three assists, Kungle contributed three assists, and Anderson managed a pair of helpers.

Forwards Luke Pfoh, Johnny Johnson, and Kellan Hjartarson also found the scoresheet last week.

Pfoh picked up two goals and an assist in the three games, Johnson finished with a pair of goals, and Hjartarson scored a goal and added a helper himself.

Defenseman Carsyn Good scored his first BCHL goal over the weekend, as did forward Jaden Fodchuk.

And last but certainly not least, how about the perfect BCHL debut for Carter Capton.

He started his first game in the league on Friday night, and recorded not only his first win — but a 15-save shutout as well.

Cranbrook is back in action with a pair of games this weekend, hosting the Wenatchee Wild on Friday and Saturday.
