Bearcat-of- the-Week honours went to forward, Nate Leger. Last week, in the first of three Bearcat games, he provided an early spark which netted him a goal and a pair of assists enroute to a Bearcat win in Berwick. He just came off the DL shelf and immediately made an impact. In that game, his line-mates Cameron MacLeod and Connor Morrison picked up two and one goals respectively. In the Miramichi game, he earned time on the PK unit as well.

He got his hockey start in the New Glasgow Minor Program working his way through the Crusher classification to play a single season of Major Bantam with Scotsburn. Next up was a season with the Weeks Midgets before the jump to the Junior ranks in 2014-2015 with the Junior Crushers. The undrafted player played 16 games with the Crushers last year before joining the Pictou County Junior B Scotians then eventually to the Yarmouth Mariners where he finished the season. In August, the Bearcats engineered a trade with Yarmouth which brought them Leger and Daniel Little. In Leger, the Bearcats received a player with grit and determination to play a full season in a winning cause.


Kudos to Bearcat Captain, Kyle Tibbo, for being selected the MHLs First Star for the month of January. He was also named the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) Second Star for January well done!
