Two Hawks honoured by BC Hockey Major Midget League

Two members of the Valley West Hawks have been named to the BC Hockey Major Midget League all-star team.

Defenceman Matt Barberis of Surrey and Langley forward James Malm were named to the six-player team Monday.

Barberis was the league’s leading scorer among defencemen, netting 13 goals and adding 40 assists in 35 games played.  Ninth in league scoring, he was the only defenceman among the top 25.

Despite missing almost a quarter of the regular season due to an injury and a stint with Team BC at the Canada Winter Games, Malm was the league’s second-leading scorer with 20 goals and 46 assists for 66 points in 31 games played.

Malm, who will suit up for the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League next season, was one point back of Owen Seidel of the Greater Vancouver Canadians in the scoring race.

The Hawks went 18-14-8 (won-lost-tied) in the regular season to finish sixth. They lost to the eventual league champion Vancouver Chiefs in the quarterfinal round.
