TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – CARIBOO COUGARS
So far, so good for the Cariboo Cougars. The TELUS Cup hosts took care of the first part of their business on the long road to Canada’s National Midget Championship, winning their last seven games to edge the Vancouver NE Chiefs by two points atop the BCMML standings. The 34-5-0-1 record was the best-ever for the Cougars, and put Cariboo in first place for just the second time in the last decade. The Cougars also set franchise records at both ends of the rink, scoring 214 goals while allowing just 75; both numbers led the league, and the goals-against total is the second-best in league history, behind only the 66 allowed by Vancouver NW in 2011-12. Daine Dubois set the pace among Cariboo forwards, co-leading the league in scoring with 67 points (27G 40A), while Jeremy Gervais finished with 49 points (15G 34A) to top all BCMML blue-liners. In goal, Zack Wickson (16-3-0) and Marcus Allen (18-2-1) shared the duties, finishing one-three in goals-against average at 1.70 and 2.01, respectively.
