James Malm has landed on the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League all-star team.
Malm was the league’s second leading scorer despite missing time down the stretch while he represented Team BC at the Canada Winter Games.
The Langley teen finished with 66 points (20 goals and 46 assists) in 31 games, a league-leading 2.1 points per game, for the Valley West Hawks.
The scoring race was won by Greater Vancouver Canadians’ Owen Seidel, who had 67 points in 38 games,
Malm, who turns 16 in June, was one of two Hawks to earn all-star accolades as he was joined on the team by White Rock’s Matt Barberis. He led all defencemen in scoring with 53 points (13 goals, 40 assists) in 35 games.
Malm has signed to play in the Western Hockey League next season with the Vancouver Giants. He was the team’s second round (44th overall) pick in the 2014 WHL bantam draft.
