King Alumnus Huisman leaving his mark at TRU


Another Powell River King alumnus had a successful freshman year in college hockey. Darcy Huisman just finished his first season with the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League. Huisman's Wolfpack lost the Championship game 5-2 to the Simon Fraser University Clan who repeated as champions.

Thompson Rivers University iced nine former BCHL products, including captain Korey Gannon (Vernon Vipers), defencemen Darcy Huisman (Powell River Kings), Joel Leonard (Quesnel Millionaires), Zac Rasmussen (Prince George Spruce Kings) and Tyler Halliday (Merritt Centennials). Huisman was named to the league's Second All-Star team in his rookie season after leading all BCIHL defencemen with 30 points.

TRU had edged out the Clan for the league's regular season title after posting a record of 19-4-1, one point better than SFU.
Overall, 31 former B.C. Hockey League players competed in the BCIHL during the 2010/11 season. For more information on the league, visit www.bcihl.ca.

Huisman played 114 career BCHL games between Prince George and Powell River. Husiman finished with 13 goals,  65 assists  for 78 points over his three years in the BCHL.

The Powell River Kings would like to congratulate Darcy on his accomplishments and wish him all the best for next season.
