West Kelowna Warrior makes BCHL All-Star Team

Mike Hardman was named to the 2nd team BCHL all-stars

Fresh of the win of the BCHL’s Most Sportsmanlike Award, West Kelowna Warriors’ forward Mike Hardman has added another accolade to his impressive season.

The Warriors’ leading goal scorer this season was named to the BCHL second team all-stars on Thursday. Simply put, the award acknowledges the top six best forwards in the entire BCHL, as Hardman just missed out on the top three positions on the first team all-stars.

Hardman was the only Warriors member named to the BCHL All-Star Team after a 39 goal and 33 assists season. He was also awarded the Bob Fenton Trophy earlier this week, which recognizes the league’s most sportsmanlike.

The league’s best team this season, the Chilliwack Chiefs, had two players named in the top six forwards, as well both players additionally making the all-rookie team.

The Penticton Vees and Victoria Grizzlies were the only teams with two players to make the first team all-stars.
