TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – VANCOUVER NW GIANTS
Make it seven consecutive B.C. Major Midget League regular season championships for the Giants, although this one was much tougher than the previous six. Vancouver and the Okanagan Rockets took identical 31-5-2 records into the final weekend of the series, and Okanagan’s 7-7 tie with Vancouver NE in the second-to-last game of the year was enough for the Giants to eke out first place by a single point. Vancouver topped the BCMML in offence (228 goals for) and defence (92 goals against), posting a ridiculous +136 goal differential, outscoring its opponents by an average of 3.4 goals per game. Colton Kerfoot – brother of 2011 TELUS Cup MVP and 2012 New Jersey Devils draft pick Alex Kerfoot – and Justin Szeto were a dynamic duo for the Giants, finishing second and third in league scoring, respectively, while Tavin Grant posted a 15-2-2 record and league-leading 2.04 goals-against average in the Vancouver net.
