Portage Terriers’ Brad Bowles continues to show he’s regarded as one of the best players in the CJHL. The native of Elkhorn has been nominated for two CJHL awards: MVP and Top Forward.
Bowles, 20, has dominated the MJHL, reflected in his MVP award this season. He also led the league in scoring with 102 points. Bowles is the fourth member of the Terriers to be nominated for a prestigious CJHL award: Brett Orr (Top Defenceman), Nick Henry (CJHL Rookie of the Year) and Nathan Park (CJHL goaltender of the year). Each of the 10 leagues within the CJHL selected a nominee for respective awards. Following the initial round of voting, five players qualified as finalists for the award and will now advance to the final stage of the selection process.
Bowles and his teammates are now in Estevan participating in Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup. Their first game is Saturday against Melfort. Five teams are participating in the round-robin tourney; two teams will then advance to the RBC Cup.
All award recipients will receive a special ring designed by Jostens Canada the official award supplier to the CJHL. Winners will be announced at next month’s RBC Cup in Lloydminister.
