TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – VANCOUVER NW GIANTS
Another year, another dominant performance for the Giants, who cruised to their sixth consecutive B.C. Major Midget League regular season title by dropping just two of 40 games. The 34 wins are the second best in franchise history, behind only the 36 posted by the 2007-08 team and their two losses tie the mark set in the same season. Vancouver wasn’t the highest-scoring team in the league – its 208 goals were good for second, three behind Cariboo – but it didn’t have to be thanks to its defence, which allowed just 77 goals, fewer than two per game. Bo Didur had a season to remember in the Giants’ goal, going undefeated at 22-0-3 and finishing with a league-leading 1.84 goals-against average. Jarid Lukosevicius paced the offence with 65 points (31 goals, 34 assists), good for fifth in BCMML scoring, one of four Vancouver skaters to crack 50 points on the year.
