Vernon Vipers forward Braden Pimm has been named the British Columbia Hockey League's Player of the Week for the week ending April 26th, the league announced Monday.
Pimm's week was highlighted by a pair of goals against the Spruce Grove Saints in Game 7 of the 2010 Doyle Cup. In that game, the 20-year old scored Vernon's opening goal on a shorthanded effort midway through the first period and later netted the tying goal en route to a Vipers' win.
The Fort St. John, B.C. product also contributed assists in Games 4 and 5, setting up a pair of power-play goals by linemate Mike Collins. Pimm finished the seven-game series with three goals and four assists.
