Academy Alumni Gerry Fitzgerald BCHL Player of the Week Feb 13 2012
See this press release from the Spruce Kings:

Gerry Fitzgerald, one third of the Fitzgerald triplets, set himself apart from his brothers, the rest of the Spruce Kings and the BCHL this past weekend with a three game outing that earned him the BCHL Player of the Week honours. Gerry had a five point weekend including two game winning goals, an assist on the third game winner and scored another beauty of his own on the powerplay all while earning two 1st star selections.

The performance from Gerry capped off a best ever road weekend for the Spruce Kings who swept their three games and put the team in second place in the Interior Division. Gerry was named the game’s first star in both halves of the double-header in Trail and was a big contributor to the team’s 8-2 win in Salmon Arm Sunday afternoon.
