It was a month to remember for Brodie MacArthur.
The Summerside D. Alex MacDonald Ford Western Capitals’ third-year forward and assistant captain was named January’s first star of the month for the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) on Tuesday.
The 19-year-old from Summerside entered the month having scored in eight straight games, and continued that torrid scoring pace with points in all eight games he played in January. In total, MacArthur tallied 10 goals and 13 assists to catapult above teammate TJ Shea for the MHL’s scoring lead. MacArthur’s resumé includes five power-play goals and three game-winning tallies.
MacArthur, who was named the league’s third star in December, had six multi-point games in January, including seven points in a 7-3 win over the Pictou County Crushers on Jan. 30.
MacArthur ended January with the most goals (32), assists (42), points (74), power-play points (24) and game-winning goals (8) in the MHL. He’s also tied with South Shore’s Nicolas Tardif and Truro’s G Blackmore with three short-handed goals.
