Merritt Centennials forward named BCHL Player of the Week.
Mathieu Gosselin was instrumental in the Cents success throughout the week as he netted 5 goals and added 3 assists. The 2nd year forward and his line mates finally broke their offensive silence in game 3 of the year against the Surrey Eagles during a 7-6 victory, a game in which Gosselin scored twice, including the game-winner, and added two assists. Against the defending champion Wenatchee Wild Gosselin chipped in with a goal and an assists as the Cents won 7-5, and the following night against Salmon Arm he added 2 more goals in a 5-2 win
Line mates Brad Cocca, and Brendan Schneider were among the leagues honorable mentions. Cocca is tied with Gosselin for 2nd in league scoring with 1 goal and 7 assists for 8 points, while Schneider is just behind his linemates output with 3 goals and 4 assists for 7 points.
The Centennials hope the offense continues this week at the BCHL Showcase against the Victoria Grizzlies on Thursday and the Langley Rivermen on Saturday.
