Former Brandon Wheat Kings Andrew Clark was named the CIS Men's Hockey Player of the Year on Wednesday night.

The Brandon product won the AUS scoring title in his third season with the Aaadia Axemen thanks to his 15 goals and 24 assists for 39 points in 28 games.

Clark was also named an all-Canadian for the first time in his career after the 5-foot-10, 180-pound forward tied for the league lead with four game-winning goals, led the conference with 129 shots and was an important part of Acadia’s power play and penalty kill units, scoring four times with the man advantage and twice shorthanded.

“We are very proud of Andrew’s accomplishments this year. He is a tremendous leader for our hockey club. To be in on over 40 percent of our goals is truly a remarkable statistic,” said Acadia head coach Darren Burns in a release, “His approach to the game is very refreshing as he is a very unselfish player whose only concern is our team’s success. Even more impressive was his ability to help so many first year players get acclimatized to university life and the game itself.”

In three seasons of university hockey, the kinesiology student has amassed an impressive 99 points in 83 league contests.
