CALGARY – Brett Beauvais of Summerside has been named one of five finalists for the 2014 Canadian Junior Hockey League’s (CJHL) top defenceman award.
Beauvais played the 2013-14 season with the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL).
Each of the 10 junior A leagues in Canada submitted a candidate to the CJHL, and that list was reduced to five finalists.
Beauvais led all defenceman in scoring with 58 points, including 45 assists, which was good enough for fifth among BCHL skaters. His 13 goals tied him for third amongst defencemen.
Beauvais, who had 15 multi-point games this year, enjoyed his best stretch in November, when he compiled 19 points in 11 games.
The six-foot-one and 185-pound Beauvais was ranked 190th among North American skaters in the NHL Central Scouting final report.
Beauvais, who was named a BCHL first-team all-star, has committed to attend Bemidji State.
