Warriors Downing Named Most Sportsmanlike; Goalie Boyle Makes All-Rookie Team

Warriors honoured for awards as playoffs begin this weekend

Warriors third year player Grayson Downing has been named the BCHL Interior Conference most sportsmanlike player.

Westside Warriors forward Grayson Downing has been announced as the Most Sportsmanlike Player in the Interior Conference for the 2010/2011 BCHL season.
Downing was second in team scoring with 70 points (34G, 36A) in 52 games played. He also finished 15th in league scoring, while compiling only 30 penalty minutes.
Downing amassed those feats while missing significant time playing for Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge in Penticton last November.
The 18 year old is already in his third season with the Warriors and will be suiting up next year for New Hampshire and playing NCAA Division 1 hockey.
At 6’1 and 185 pounds Downing is a unique blend of size, skill and smarts on and off the ice.
Rookie Warriors goalie Kevin Boyle was also recognized this week as the BCHL named an all rookie team for the first time in many years.
Boyle was 20-16-1 with a 3.02 save percentage and a .902 save percentage this season.
The Warriors opened its first round BCHL playoff series on Friday night at Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna, hosting the Trail Smoke Eaters.
Game two was Saturday night. Due to the Capital News press deadline, the results of those games are unavailable. Games three and four are Monday and Tuesday in Trail. If necessary the series will shift back to Westside for games five and seven on Thursday and Saturday while a potential game six would take place on Friday night in Trail.
