TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – PENTICTON VEES

The Penticton Vees came within an overtime goal of playing for the RBC Cup last season, and bounced back from that disappointment by blowing away the rest of the B.C. Hockey League in pretty much every way imaginable in 2015-16. The Vees’ 50-7-0-1 record left them 18 points ahead of Chilliwack in the league standings, their 263 goals for and 121 goals against were 14 more and 26 fewer than any other BCHL team, and they were No. 1 in power play (30.2%) and No. 2 in penalty killing (84.9%). Penticton dropped its season opener, 4-2 to Salmon Arm on Sept. 11, but didn’t taste defeat again for more than two months, running off a 23-game winning streak that gave them control of the BCHL before the schedule reached the Christmas break. Up front, Scott Conway had points in 54 of 56 games and led the league with 116 points, while 17-year-old captain Tyson Jost had a league-high 62 assists and finished third with 104 points. The goaltending tandem of Zachary Driscoll and Anthony Brodeur (son of Martin) was lights-out; they finished one-two in goals-against average (1.90 and 1.99) and save percentage (.933 and .931), and Brodeur paced all BCHL netminders with 28 wins.
