West Kelowna Warriors forward Max French and Prince George Spruce Kings defenceman Trevor Esau have been named the first-ever recipients of the FortisBC Energy Player of the Year honour.
French, the Warriors captain and veteran of 193 BCHL games with the Warriors, earned four FortisBC Energy Player of the Game nods in 10 playoff games as his team advanced to the Interior Conference finals.
Esau, the Spruce Kings captain and veteran of 159 BCHL games with the Spruce Kings, earned 11 FortisBC Energy Player of the game nods through 51 games played in the regular season to take the crown for that portion of the schedule.
The BCHL and FortisBC salute these players for their efforts on the ice this season and congratulate them on their respective honours.
FortisBC has been a longtime partner of the BCHL. Together, the BCHL and FortisBC look forward to recognizing the league's hardest working players night in and night out through the regular season and playoffs.
