Cowichan Valley Capitals forward David Jacobs, Cranbrook Bucks forward Tyson Dyck and West Kelowna Warriors defenceman Charles-Alexis Legault have been named the BCHL 3 Stars of the Week.

1st Star – David Jacobs (F) – Cowichan Valley Capitals

Jacobs collected a pair of goals and added four assists for six points in two games last week, tying for the league lead in points over that stretch.

The 20-year-old played setup man in Friday night’s 6-2 win over the Victoria Grizzlies. Jacobs assisted on both of Cowichan’s first-period goals and added a third helper midway through the middle frame to finish with three on the night. He was named the game’s first star.

On Saturday, he registered his second straight three-point night, scoring twice and adding an assist in a narrow 4-3 defeat to the Nanaimo Clippers. The Needham, Mass. native had a goal and an assist in the second period, then added his second marker late in the third to cut the lead to one.

Jacobs finishes the regular season as the Capitals leading scorer with 52 points in 54 games. His efforts last week helped Cowichan clinch the final playoff spot in the Costal Conference.

2nd Star – Tyson Dyck (F) – Cranbrook Bucks

Dyck racked up six assists in two games over the weekend to lead the league in assists and tie for the most points.

The 2022 NHL Draft prospect did the majority of his damage on Friday night in a home matchup against the Penticton Vees. Dyck recorded five helpers, assisting on all of his team’s goals, in a 5-2 win. After collecting an assist in both the first and second periods, he assisted on three straight Cranbrook goals in the third period to seal the win. All five of his assists were primary.

The following night in a rematch against Penticton, Dyck had another assist in his team’s 6-1 loss.

The Abbotsford, B.C. product is fourth in league scoring with 74 points in 53 contests.

3rd Star – Charles-Alexis Legault (D) – West Kelowna Warriors

Typically more of a defensive defenceman, Legault tied for the points lead among blueliners last week with five in three games. He scored three goals over that span and all three were game-winners.

The 2003-born defender collected three points in Thursday’s matchup with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. He scored a third-period goal, his first since Jan. 29, to go along with two assists to finish with three points and first-star honours in the Warriors 5-3 home win.

On Friday, West Kelowna was on the road in Merritt where Legault scored once again in a 7-1 win. He finished the week out on Sunday by scoring a goal for the third straight game, his sixth of the year, to help the Warriors to a 6-1 win against the Vernon Vipers.

Legault now has 16 points in 35 games this season.
