As the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference season came to an unceremonious end this week, there was one honour left to hand out for an RDC Kings hockey player.
Third-year Kings forward Chase Thudium earned a second-team all-conference selection for his efforts this season.
The Sylvan Lake native led the team with 17 goals 36 points in 28 games, good for sixth overall in league scoring. His 17 goals placed him fourth in the ACAC. He had six power play goals, on a Kings’ unit that produced at 24.3 per cent this season.
“Chase is one of the most competitive players that I’ve ever coached,” said Kings Head Coach Trevor Keeper.
“He is capable of making plays at high speed. Chase doesn’t like to lose anything and he really pushes the pace in games and practice.”
Thudium, who will return to the Kings next season, one was on their clutch performers in the 2019-20 season, with three games winners, two of which came in overtime.
