Clippers forward picked as player of the week

Jake Harris earns BCHL honour after four goals, including two OT winners, in three games

Two straight overtime game-winning goals were impressive enough to warrant B.C. Hockey League Player of the Week honours.

Nanaimo Clippers forward Jake Harris was recognized with that honour after scoring four goals in three games. He scored in OT in a win Nov. 8 in Duncan against the Cowichan Valley Capitals, and then again Friday, Nov. 10 at Frank Crane Arena against the Powell River Kings. Harris went on to add two more goals the next night in Port Alberni in a 4-1 win over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

The Clippers are on the road this weekend, Nov. 17-19, taking on the Prince George Spruce Kings, the Chilliwack Chiefs and the Langley Rivermen.
