Lambert takes 1st BCHLPOW of the season

Vernon Vipers forward Jimmy Lambert has been named the BCHL Player of the Week for the week ending Sept. 10, the league announced Monday.

Lambert had a five-point night, including the tying and winning goals in the third period, in a 6-5 Vipers home win Sunday. The product of Saskatoon had already assisted on three Vipers goals going into the third period when they fell behind by a goal to Salmon Arm. Lambert tied the game with a shorthanded effort and then got the winner just 2:21 later.

His scoring outburst puts him atop the BCHL scoring leaders after opening weekend. He is committed to NCAA Div. I University of Alaska-Fairbanks for next season.
