He was already named the top rookie for the British Columbia Hockey League, now he can also add Canadian Junior Hockey League rookie of the year to his resume.
Out of 132 teams, Alex Newhook was awarded rookie player of the year through voting by each of the CJHL’s 10-member leagues from across the country.
In just his first year in Junior A, the St. John’s native led all BCHL rookies with 66 points in 45 games (22 goals, 44 assists). Overall, the St. John’s native finished eighth in points – even after missing the last three weeks of the season due to injury.
This past season Newhook also played for Team Canada Black at the World Under-17 hockey challenge.
The rookie of the year has committed to Boston College of the NCAA on a scholarship for the 2019-2020 season and is ranked No. 2 for the 2019 NHL Draft by Hockey News.
