A Grade 11 student at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary’s netminding and team leadership skills has earned him a prestigious honour.

Cloverdale’s Braden Krogfoss has been named Major Midget League Player of the Month for December, BC Hockey announced this week.

Krogfoss, goalie for the Vancouver North West Giants, is leading the BCMML’s goalie standings.

He had a great month, finishing with a record 3-0-0, 0.33 goals against average, plus two shutouts, BCHockey.net reported Monday.

His “marquee win” was in Prince George, where he made 29 saves in a 1-0 win against the Cariboo Cougars in a rematch of the 2010-2011 MML championships.

“Braden is a quiet leader on the Giants who is always fully prepared to play and competes very hard in all practices,” Giants head coach Todd Harkins said.

In being named Player of the Month, Krogfoss was chosen from a high calibre list of nominees. Runners up included teammate Nicolas Hermary.

The Major Midget League was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17-year-olds with an opportunity to play within their own age group, helping develop their skills for the next level of hockey.
