Monday, March 30, 2015 - Submitted by BCHL Media
Penticton Vees defenceman Miles Gendron has been named the BCHL Player of the Week for the week ending March 29, the league announced Monday.
Gendron helped the Vees to two wins to begin the Round-robin semifinals and assisted on four goals from the blueline along the way. The Toronto product set up three Vees tallies, including Riley Alferd's winner March 27, and was named 1st Star in that contest. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound rearguard assisted on Demico Hannoun's OT winner in Chilliwack as well.
An Ottawa Senators third-round draft pick in 2014, Gendron is committed to the University of Connecticut for next season. He has 10 assists in 14 playoff games after posting just 17 points in 54 regular-season games.
