DAWSON HEATHCOTE
Oceanside Generals

A 4 goal 2 assist weekend for Dawson Heathcote has netted him Player of the Week honours. The ‘16/17 VIJHL Rookie of the Year is ripping it up as a 19 year old with the Oceanside Generals. Number 91 has been on the scoresheet in his last 6 contests. Head Coach Dan Lemmon says of the former WHL’er, “Dawson is a dynamic forward at this level. He’s a leader on and off the ice for our team and a good role model for young guys on our squad.”
