The British Columbia Major Midget League (BCMML) announced on Tuesday afternoon that Rockets goaltender Cole Demers was named an all-star for the 2015/16 season.
Demers, 16, appeared in 30 of the 40 regular season games for the Rockets, setting a team record with 18 wins, which was also a BCMML high amongst all goaltenders. The North Vancouver native finished the season with an 18-8-4 record and 5 shutouts to go along with a 1.94 GAA, which would finish 2nd in the BCMML to the North West Giants Beck Warm (1.89). Demers was forced to shoulder a heavy load in the regular season with a mid-season injury to goaltender Liam Hughes and Demers excelled in the spotlight.
To add to a superb regular season, Demers also spent time in the BCHL with the Vernon Vipers as an affiliate player, backing up on numerous occasions. Cole, just like in the regular season, was excellent in the playoffs posting a 3-2 record in 5 playoff games, along with a 3.40 GAA and a .902 save percentage. In addition to the all-star nod today, Demers was named the Rockets team MVP two weeks ago at the 1st annual Rockets awards banquet.
The Rockets Spring Identification Camp is just around the corner, with goaltenders reporting to camp on Thursday, May 12th and the remaining players hitting the ice on Friday, May 13th with the camp running through until Sunday, May 15th. For more information on the upcoming camp, click here.
