Adamyk named POW

Powell River Kings goaltender Mitch Adamyk has been named the BCHL Player of the Week for the week ending Dec. 9, the league announced Monday.

Adamyk earned back-to-back shutouts in his two starts this week, stopping all 60 shots he faced in a pair of Kings wins.

The 19-year-old from East St. Paul, Man. made 30 saves in a 4-0 shutout victory on the road over the Cowichan Valley Capitals on Wednesday night, then followed it up with another 30-save performance on Saturday in a 5-0 blanking of the Chilliwack Chiefs.

This was the second time in the last three weeks that Adamyk has recorded back-to-back shutouts and he now leads the league in that category with four. He owns the sixth-best goals-against average in the BCHL at 2.72 and the seventh-highest save percentage at .909. After this weekend, he sees his record improve to 14-5-4.
