Langley’s Puskarich earns player of the week

Rivermen leading scorer has four goals, three assists in three-game span

A big weekend for Mario Puskarich has earned the Langley Rivermen’s leading scorer a BCHL weekly honour.

Puskarich had points on seven of his junior A hockey club’s 10 goals to earn player of the week honours.

Puskarich recorded a hat trick and one assist in his team’s 6-5 victory on Oct. 27 over the Surrey Eagles at the Langley Events Centre.

The Fort Walton, Fla. native also notched a pair of assists the night before in a 5-3 loss to the Eagles at South Surrey Arena.

And he finished his productive weekend with his team’s only goal in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the host Coquitlam Express on Sunday afternoon.

Puskarich, who is in his second season with Langley, leads the Rivermen with 11 goals and 21 points through 16 games. He is tied for second in the league in points.
