Spartans Sign BCIHL Goal Scoring Leader


Aug 27,2014(ISN) – LANGLEY, British Columbia – Trinity Western’s men’s hockey team bolstered its
offense in a huge way for the upcoming campaign as the Spartans officially announced
the addition of former Selkirk left winger and BCIHL leading goal-scorer Cody
Fidgett (Richmond, B.C.) Tuesday.

Fidgett, who was part of the Selkirk side that knocked off the Spartans in the 2014
BCIHL championship series, tallied 22 goals in 24 games last year to earn a share of
the league lead with then-teammate Connor McLaughlin. Both Saints snipers edged TWU
forward JP Villeneuve (Georgetown, Ont.), who had 21 goals in his rookie season, for
top spot in the BCIHL goal-scoring race.

The 5-11, 185-pound Fidgett, who will enter his fourth year of eligibility this
fall, finished last year with 22 goals and 15 assists in 24 games and, in two
seasons in the BCIHL with Selkirk, he has 32 goals and 28 assists in 43 games.

In addition to his regular season totals, Fidgett, 23, had four goals and eight
assists in eight playoff games as he helped Selkirk to back-to-back league titles.

“We are excited to be adding a player of Cody’s calibre,” said Spartans coach Barret
Kropf. “He has shown he can produce offensively in this conference and with his
class load coming to an end at Selkirk College, we are glad that he was able to
transfer his courses to the TWU business program and work towards his degree. He
gives us instant depth up front and should be a nice fit alongside JP for the coming

Prior to his collegiate career, the graduate of Richmond’s McRoberts Secondary spent
four seasons with the Delta Ice Hawks of the Junior “B” PJHL (Pacific Junior Hockey
League). In 109 PJHL regular season games, Fidgett collected 55 goals and 32 assists
while adding another 34 goals and 25 assists in 49 playoff games.

“I’m excited to come to Trinity Western to further my education and help the
Spartans win a championship,” said Fidgett, who plans to study business.

Fidgett brings a winning pedigree to the Spartans as he comes to TWU having won his
team’s league title in each of the last three years. Fidgett’s Saints on the BCIHL
crown in both 2013, when he scored the championship winner in
overtime, and 2014, while in 2012, he
guided Delta to the PJHL championship.
