Former Blue Franko named to CIS all-rookie team

Former Winnipeg Blue forward Zach Franko has been named to the CIS all-rookie team. The Winnipegger, who turned 22 earlier this month, had an excellent freshman season with University of Acadia Axemen.

The left winger recorded 30 points (12-18) in 28 CIS games.

Franko played for the Blues in the 2009-10 MJHL season before moving on to the Western Hockey League.
