Blizzard captain is September star of junior hockey league

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick – September’s first star of the Maritime Junior Hockey League is forward and captain Kyle Ward of the Edmundston Blizzard.

 

In September, the 19-year-old left-handed forward had 8 goals and 4 assists for 12 points in 5 games, good for the league lead in points and tied for the league lead in goals.

 

The Sackville native had a huge game versus the St. Stephen Aces on Sept. 23 in which he notched 3 goals and added 2 assists for 5 points.

 

Ward is a former Saint John Seadog of the QMJHL and helped them win the playoff title (President Cup) last season.

 

Ward’s offense is a big reason the Blizzard are off to a 5-0 start to the season. On Oct. 5, he stretched his consecutive number of games with at least a goal to six.
