Year one of the Langley Rivermen era is in the books, and a Fort St. Jame player drew some attention

Year one of the Langley Rivermen era is in the books, and a Fort St. Jame player drew some attention.

The junior A hockey club, which failed to qualify for the BCHL playoffs, wrapped up its regular season with a 19-35-1-5 record. The team held its year-end banquet on March 12.

The most improved player award went to rookie forward Jackson Playfair from Fort St. James. After a slow start in the season’s first half, Playfair began to find his game, finishing with six goals and a dozen assists.
