De Jersey one of 10 finalists for RBC Canadian Junior Player of the Year
Monday, May 7, 2012 - Submitted by CJHL Communications

This season, more than 3,000 players suited up for Junior A games across Canada, from Nanaimo, B.C. to Woodstock, N.B. but only ten have been named as finalists for the RBC Canadian Junior Hockey League Player of the Year award. Paul De Jersey of the Prince George Spruce Kings is the BCHL candidate.
 
The finalists were selected by their respective CJHL leagues, with the winner announced during the 2012 RBC Cup in Humboldt, SK, and presented with his award at the tournament awards banquet on May 11.
 
The winner will join a distinguished list of past honourees that includes current and former NHLers Kyle Turris (2007), Jeff Tambellini (2002), Dany Heatley (1999), Mike Comrie (1998), Paul Kariya (1992) and Greg Johnson (1989).

The winner of the BCHL’s Interior Conference MVP award, De Jersey came out of nowhere to claim the Brett Hull Trophy as the league’s leading scorer; he finished with 98 points (41 goals, 57 assists) in 59 games after posting just 15 points in 33 games with Salmon Arm in 2010-11, and led the Spruce Kings back to the playoffs after a two-year absence, while also receiving an invite to the Canada West selection camp leading up to the 2011 World Junior A Challenge

A leader both on and off the ice, De Jersey put in considerable time this season with the St. Vincent DePaul Society, which prepares and serves meals for the less fortunate in Prince George. He was also committed to visiting elementary schools in the city, reading to and talking to young students.

His Junior A playing days over, De Jersey will head south next season to Providence College, an NCAA Division 1 school, to continue his hockey career with the Friars, with an eye towards majoring in business.

The other candidates are:

Jayson Argue - Swan Valley Stampeders (Manitoba Junior Hockey League)
Vincent Blanchette - College Francais de Longueuil (Ligue de Hockey Junior AAA du Quebec)
Tim Campbell - Woodstock Slammers (Maritime Hockey League)
Jordan Carroll - Sudbury Cubs (Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League)
Craig Cowie - Nepean Raiders (Central Canada Hockey League)
Christian Finch - Stouffville Spirit (Ontario Junior Hockey League)
Byron Katapaytuk - Fort Frances Lakers (Superior International Junior Hockey League)
Peter Quenneville - Sherwood Park Crusaders (Alberta Junior Hockey League)
Blake Tatchell - Battlefords North Stars (Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League)
