Schmalz Cup Quarter Final Results
Alliston Wins Series 4 - 2
Wednesday Mar 20: 8:30 Alliston 3 @ Walkerton 4 OT Boxscore
The just completed Western Junior C Hockey League season was highlighted by the record breaking performance of Wingham Ironmen centre Aaron Armstrong.
Armstrong finished the season with 50 goals and 74 assists for a new league record, 124 points. The old mark was 113 points set by Hanover Baron Dave Hopkins in 1986-87, a mark that stood up for 26 years.
Armstrong, who hails from Teeswater, is also just the second Western Junior C player to score 50 goals.
The OHA Junior C player of the year for 2011-12 captained the Ironmen to a solid-fourth place finish and the team challenged for third all year.
It should come as no surprise that the sniper would also dominate the post-season awards.
In addition to being named the League’s Top Scorer, Armstrong was a unanimous choice as the League’s Most Valuable Player.
He was also named the league’s Most Sportsmanlike Player with just 24 penalty minutes.
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Walkerton Hawks Connor Patton finished the season with 19 goals, including seven on the power play, and 28 assists for 47 points in helping the Hawks finish first for the fifth year in a row.
Patton’s teammate in Walkerton, Jordan Turcotte, was named the league’s top blue liner. Turcotte had 9 goals and 12 assists in 25 games for Walkerton.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Matt Mullin, who guided the Mount Forest Patriots this season, was named Coach of the Year.
Walkerton goaltenders Jeff Flagler League Leading 2.60) and Justin Hammond (3.89) combined to have the league’s lowest goals against average. Walkerton gave up just 93 goals this year, 30 fewer than the next closest team.
Walkerton also takes the trophy for being the Regular Season Champions.
