BCHL Season Opens for 3 UNH Recruits

The British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) opened the 2012-13 season over the weekend with its first ever Showcase Event. All 16 BCHL teams played two games at the Prospera Center in Chilliwack, BC. Three UNH Recruits saw their first action of the regular season.

Mike McNicholas, who has targeted either the Fall of 2013 or 2014 to play at UNH, scored a goal in his second game with the Nanaimo Clippers. The Clippers beat the Salmon Arm Silverbacks 2-1 after losing their opening game to the Chilliwack Chiefs. The 18-year-old McNicholas - a 5'10",175 lbs., left-shot forward - is in his second year of junior hockey. As a 17-year old, he played last season for the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Hockey League.

17-year-old defenseman Cam Marks of the Coquitlam Express began his first full season of BCHL competition on Sunday as the Express defeated the Cowichan Valley Capitals 3-0. Marks - a 6'0", 175 lbs. right-shot - was called up for two games last season with the Penticton Vees. Marks and UNH have targeted the Fall of 2014 as the time to enroll.

Dylan Chanter began his second season with the Merritt Centennials as the Cents split their two weekend games. Chanter, who will turn 17 in a week, is a 6'3", 195 lbs., right-shot defenseman. Like Marks, his target date for enrollment at UNH is the Fall of 2014.
