Not bad for a B.C. Hockey League (BCHL) rookie.

Prince George Spruce Kings goaltender Logan Neaton has set a new franchise record for most wins in a single season after lifting his team over the Langley Rivermen 4-1 on Monday (Feb. 4).

The victory is the 27th for the 19-year-old’s first season in the BCHL.

He surpasses Evan DeBrouwer, who accumulated 26 wins last year with the Spruce Kings before earning a spot in the Fred Page Cup Finals.

During Monday’s clash in Langley, Patrick Cozzi managed to record a three-point night (one goal, two assists), including the game-winner late in the second period.

The other goal-scorers were NHL Draft prospect Layton Ahac, Ben Brar, and Liam Watson-Brawn.

Prince George improves to 32-12-1-5, five points back of the Mainland Division-leading Chilliwack Chiefs with eight games left in the regular season.

The Spruce Kings will stay on the road this week with games in Coquitlam (Feb. 8), Langley once more (Feb. 9), and Surrey (Feb. 10).

They’ll return home for Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) for a date with Prince George native Brandon West and the West Kelowna Warriors at the Rolling Mix Concrete Arena (RMCA).
