On Friday night against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, the 2003-born forward recorded a goal and a helper in the first period and chipped in with his second tally of the game in the third to finish with three points in a 6-4 loss.
Trail was back on the ice the following night, this time against the Cowichan Valley Capitals, and put forth the best performance of his season. The Raritan, N.J. native scored twice and added three assists for a five-point night in an 8-4 victory over the Caps. He was named first star of the game.
Fechko, who is committed to Arizona State University, finished his week with an assist on Sunday afternoon in a 7-2 loss to the Victoria Grizzlies.
Friday and Saturday were his first multi-point performances of the season and he now has 14 points in 15 games to tie for the team lead in scoring.
2nd Star – Tyler Kopff (F) – Coquitlam Express
The 19-year-old chipped in with an assist in Wednesday afternoon’s 5-3 loss to the Langley Rivermen and on Saturday night, he added another two helpers in Coquitlam’s 5-4 shootout win over the Powell River Kings.
Kopff saved his best for last though, scoring twice and adding two more assists for a four-point performance on Sunday afternoon in his team’s 6-1 home victory against the Cranbrook Bucks where he was named the game’s first star.
For the Brown University commit, the four-point outing was the first of his career, but it was his fifth multi-point effort so far this season. Kopff is tied for the Express lead in scoring with 18 points in 16 contests.
