West Kelowna Warriors forward Jonathan Desbiens has been named the BCHL Player of the Week for the week ending Jan. 31, the league announced Monday.
Desbiens posted one of the highest-scoring weeks in recent memory, racking up six goals and nine assists for 15 points in four games – all wins for the Warriors. The Montreal native opened with a pair of assists in an 8-1 win over Trail to start the week and followed that starting a road trip with two goals and two helpers for 1st Star in a 7-1 win in Cowichan Valley. The next night, he took 1st Star again with two goals and three assists in a 6-5 OT win in Powell River and he wrapped up the trip with another goal and two assists in a 6-3 win in Chilliwack.
Committed to Bentley University for next season, Desbiens production last week moved him up to fourth in the BCHL in goals with 35 and seventh overall in points with 67.
