Nanaimo Clippers forward Andrew Gladiuk has been named the British Columbia Hockey League Player of the Week for the week ending January 23, the league announced Monday.
Gladiuk picked up two ponts in each of the Clippers four games last week, helping his club to six of a possible eight points over their Coastal Conference foes. The Surrey native set up the game-winning goal in a 5-4 win over Langley and scored the game-winner the next game in another 5-4 win over Victoria.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder cracked the 20-goal mark with his efforts last week and continues to lead Nanaimo in scoring with 56 points on the campaign.
Honourable mentions this week go to Surrey defenceman Steve Koshey (three games, five assists, one 2nd Star, one 3rd Star ), Coquitlam forward Jason Grecica (four games, three goals, five assists, one 3rd Star) and Surrey goalie Karel St. Laurent (three games, two wins, one 2nd Star, one 3rd Star, 1.67 GAA, .950 save percentage).
