Langley’s Austin Plevy, Josh Monk land on all-star team

The solid season of a pair of former Langley Minor Hockey League players has earned them BCHL accolades

A pair of Langley Minor Hockey alumni were both named B.C. Hockey League all-stars last week (March 6).

Austin Plevy and Josh Monk were named BCHL second-team all-stars for the Coastal Conference and Interior Conference, respectively.

Plevy, an 18-year-old forward for the Chilliwack Chiefs, had 30 goals and 73 points to finish second in the BCHL scoring race to Langley Rivermen’s Mario Puskarich.

Monk, a 20-year-old defenceman for the West Kelowna Warriors, has nine goals and 46 points to finish fourth in league scoring among defencemen.

It was one of two honours for Monk last week as he was also named the Canadian Junior Hockey League’s second star for the month of February.

Monk led all BCHL defencemen in scoring for the month with four goals and nine assists. He had points in seven of the eight games he played while helping the team to an impressive 7-1-1 record.

Monk is off to Providence College on scholarship next season, while Plevy is slated to attend Merrimack.

Both Plevy and Monk also helped their respective teams qualify for the BCHL’s Fred Page Cup playoffs, which begin tomorrow (Friday).

Chilliwack faces Prince George while West Kelowna battles Merritt.
