Jeremy GERVAIS Named AJHL Player of the Week

The Canalta Hotels (October 14 to 21) Player of the Week is Bonnyville Pontiacs defenceman Jeremy Gervais, who recorded 9 points (1G, 8A) in a five-game road trip through the Viterra AJHL South Division.  Gervais returns home third in team scoring with 13 points (1G, 12A) and 4th overall among AJHL defencemen.

The Bonnyville Pontiacs completed a rare five-game road trip, picking up four wins against the Olds Grizzlys, Calgary Canucks, Calgary Mustangs and Canmore Eagles.  The only falter of the week came against the Okotoks Oilers on Saturday night in a 5-1 loss.  The 8-point gain earned them possession of first place in the Viterra AJHL North Division standings with a record of 13-3-0.

Gervais, 19, started the trip with a 3-point performance in an 8-1 win versus the Olds Grizzlys on Monday.  He added 3 assists to his stats on Tuesday in a 7-1 victory over the Canucks, and another 2 assists in a 5-2 win across town on Thursday versus the Mustangs.  The first year Pontiac blueliner was held off the scoresheet in Okotoks on Saturday, but earned an assist in the team’s 3-2 win in Canmore on Sunday afternoon.
