The St. James finished their regular season yesterday with a tough 4-3 overtime loss to the St. Boniface Riels. The team finished sixth place in the standings and will play the Pembina Valley Twisters in the first round of the playoffs. There was much to
celebrate this season for the Canucks. Here are some of the milestones the team set this season:
– The team finished with a record of 24-18-3, good for 51 points. The 51 points were the most points by a Canucks team in 8 seasons. It was tied for the 4th most points in the past 14 seasons.
– The Canucks boasted 2 players in the top 10 in scoring. Mitchell Lockhart was 6th in league scoring with 29 goals, 28 assists and 57 points in 43 games. Nick Stire was 9th in scoring with 23 goals, 27 assists and 50 points in 45 games.
– The team had 5 players with double digit goals this season (Lockhart 29, Stire 23, Arnason 18, Hill 13, Kemball 13)

The Canucks are hoping to make a long run into the playoffs. It has been 8 seasons since they have advanced past the first round. At the conclusion of the playoff run, the Canucks will bid a farewell to 4 graduating players: Tyler Arnason (4 years);
Austin Hill (4 years); Riley Flynn (4 years) and Scott Gallaher (4 years). The team would like to thank them for all their hard work and dedication to the franchise over the years. The Canucks wish all 4 players the best of luck in their future
endeavours and look forward to seeing them in future Canucks games/events.
Once a Canuck, always a Canuck! #Nuckerpride
