BCHL "Stars" Shine

It's been a good weekend for Wisconsin's BCHL recruits.

On friday night, Derek Lee helped lift the Victoria Grizzles to a 6-5 OT win w/ a goal and three assists. For his efforts, he was named 1st Star! He followed this up last night w/ two assists as again Victoria won in OT. His weekend isn't even complete, Victoria plays again today, but a 1-5-6 stat line is a great start.

Justin Schutlz and the Westside Warriors split a pair of games this weekend. On friday, Justin was named 2nd Star while having a lone assist. This isn't the first time I've seen Justin named one of the three stars even though his team lost or he didn't have a big stat line. He must be doing some other things on the ice to make a difference. Last night he was held off the scoresheet, but Westside was a winner.

1st Star Zengerle apparently didn't want to be shown up by his future Badger teammates. While being held off the scoresheet last night, Zengerle made up for it w/ two goals and an assist last night as Salmon Arm won 3-1. Who would have guessed it, he was named 1st Star.

Next weekend is the end of the regular season for the BCHL, most teams have 2 or 3 games left. Victoria, Salmon Arm and Westside are all locks for the post season. Here are the standings.
