LONDON – Sarnia Legionnaires ace Jason Teschke and Lambton Shores Predators star Adam Aresenault were big winners here Monday at the annual Western Ontario Hockey Conference awards banquet.
20 year old Adam Aresenault from Wyoming was the 2012-13 Recipient of the CHOK Award as Western Conference Most Valuable Player. Previously this year Aresenault was selected as Western Conference First-Team All-Star, selected to participate in 2013 GOJHL All-Star Game and 2013 GOJHL Western Conference All-Star Game. Aresenault also was awared the Western Conference Offensive Player of the Month for November, 2012
Teschke, a 20-year-old Corunna resident, led the nine-team conference in scoring with 87 points. Included in his totals were 37 goals and 50 assists.
"I'd like to thank my teammates,'' Teschke said. ''They really helped me win this.''
This was not the first 2013 accolade for the artful winger. In fact, Teschke was named January's WOHC offensive player of the month after collecting 20 points in nine games, including five in one contest.
Nor was it his first scoring crown. Two years ago, playing with the Mooretown Flags, he was the top point-getter in the Great Lakes Jr. 'C' League. The last Legionnaire to win the scoring title was Matt Abercrombie, who turned the trick in 2009, the same year the team won the Western Jr. 'B' championship.
Another Legionnaire, Jeff King, was named to the rookie all-star team.
King said the honour was "awesome" but he'd "rather win the league championship a hundred times more."
