SFU's Ben Van Lare sets BCIHL single season scoring record
Saturday, February 25, 2012 - Submitted by BCIHL Media
Simon Fraser University forward Ben Van Lare set a new record for points in a single British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League season on Saturday night in the Clan's 7-3 victory over Thompson Rivers at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby.
Van Lare needed one point on Saturday to tie Rob Vos's previous record of 52 points in a season, and he hit that milestone less than two minutes into regulation when he entered the TRU zone and blasted a slap shot over the shoulder of WolfPack starter Shane Mainprize.
He broke the record minutes later when he helped set up linemate Jono Ceci for a power-play marker and finished the night with four points following a pair of third period assists.
The Dallas, TX product now has 55 points on the season with one regular season game remaining against the University of Victoria on Saturday, March 3rd.
Van Lare has collected points in all but one of SFU's 23 games this season, and earlier this season set another BCIHL record -- for points in consecutive games with 21. The former Western Hockey Leaguer has a season high of seven points in a game and has counted four points in four games and three points in an additional five games.
Vos, the BCIHL's career scoring leader, scored 52 points for the University of the Fraser Valley during the 2009/10 season.
