The BCHL has suspended Surrey Eagles D Nicholas Beck (95) for what appears to be two games for abuse of an official.
I haven’t seen video of what happened, but on the box score for the Eagles 8-2 loss to Nanaimo on Sunday, Beck was assessed a game misconduct, which one can only deduce was the penalty that triggered the suspension.
Under the league’s discipline on the BCHL website, it states the following:
Surrey Eagles Nicholas Beck is suspended 1 game for receiving a game misconduct abuse of an official
Surrey Eagles Nicholas Beck is suspended 1 game for abuse of an official
Not sure if it’s just a double post, or if Beck is actually out for two games.
The Canadian Junior Hockey League released its weekly Top 20 rankings on Monday morning and three BCHL teams are represented.
The Penticton Vees are the top ranked BCHL team in third (up one spot from last week). Nanaimo is up three spots from 17 to 14 since last week while Chilliwack drops from 11th to 16th. Check out the release from the CJHL on the Top 20 Rankings here.
There’s a new blog on the BCHL scene as Victoria Grizzlies broadcasters Tyler Bennett and Clay Cochrane have jumped into the fray. Check out the blog right here.
The Coquitlam Express continues to tinker with its roster as it looks to gain ground in the Mainland Division. Express GM and Head Coach Barry Wolff sent veteran D Austen Bietenbeck (95) to the Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
Bietenbeck, who’s from Langley, has one assist in 11 games this season with Coquitlam. Overall, he’s tallied four assists in 67 career BCHL games.
The Surrey Eagles made more changes with their roster, this time signing former West Kelowna Warriors F Cole Plotnikoff (97) as a free agent.
Plotnikoff spent five games this season with the Warriors before being released earlier this month. He had one goal with West Kelowna. The Valley West Hawks alum joined Surrey just before its three game set this past weekend and has one goal thus far with the Eagles.
Plotnikoff’s career stats are available here.
- D Ryley Booth – Two games for participating in a fight at the end of a period
- D Brandon Egli – Two games for participating in a multiple-fight situation and two games for participating in a fight at the end of a period
- F Riley Brandt – Two games for third man in a fight, two games for participating in a multiple-fight situation, and two games for participating in a fight at the end of a period
- G Danny Todosychuk – Two games for participating in a multiple-fight situation, two games for fighting at the end of a period, and two games for goaltender involved in a fight.
- GM and Head Coach Mark Ferner – One game for his club participating in three fights during the same stoppage.
- F Kyle Marino – Two games for participating in a fight at the end of a period
- F Brett Mennear – Two games for participating in a multiple-fight situation and two games for participating in a fight at the end of a period
- F Kade Kehoe – Two games for participating in a multiple-fight situation and two games for participating in a fight at the end of a period
- GM and Head Coach Rylan Ferster – One game for his club participating in three fights during the same stoppage.
In all, 22 of the NHL’s 30 teams have a former BCHLer on their roster. With three, the Ottawa Senators and Dallas Stars have the most former BCHLers featured.
