Logan Proulx Capping Off a Great Hockey Career
Leadership comes in many forms and in the hockey world it’s key to team success. As the Selkirk Saints head into the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) playoffs in search of a third straight league title, leading the charge will be a captain who has brought a work ethic and attitude that’s helped turn an entire program around.
Trail-raised Logan Proulx played his last BCIHL regular season game this past weekend at Eastern Washington University. Like he has in the previous 67 regular season games he has played at this level, Proulx made an impact scoring a goal and keeping his team focused.
An important part of two Selkirk College league championships, Saints captain Logan Proulx is leading his team into the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey Championship playoffs starting this weekend at the Castlegar Recreation Centre.
Heading into the BCIHL semi-finals this weekend at the Castlegar Recreation Centre, if the Saints are going to knock off the University of Victoria and make a push towards a three-peat, Proulx’s leadership on and off the ice will be once again put to the test.
“I’m having a good time,” says Proulx, who plays the game with a spirited zest that is unmatched. “I don’t think there is any room at this level for any negativity and as the captain I try to lead that way.”
And lead he has.
Proulx arrived to Selkirk College at the beginning of the 2012-2013 season to a Saints program that had been the doormat of the league for five seasons, winning only 13 times in 104 regular season games. Over the last three seasons the Saints have won an impressive 55 games in 72 games and captured two provincial titles. In that time, Proulx has notched 108 points—or 1.6 per game—and has been an integral part of both championship seasons.
“Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought we would come out of here with two championships,” says the 23-year-old Proulx.
