Butcher Plays In Career Game #200

This is in the BCHL E Newsletter:

The 200 Club

December 17th 2015

Because it requires playing in the league for four seasons, not that many BCHLers rack up 200 games. But already this year, a couple of veteran players have reached the lofty plateau.

West Kelowna forward Garrett Forster reached 200 during the Bauer BCHL Showcase as the Warriors downed the Cowichan Valley Capitals 2-1. Forster has been a point-per-game player each of the last three years and will try to establish new career highs in all stats columns this season.

Another player that recently cracked the 200-game mark is Vernon Vipers forward Ben Butcher who reached the milestone in a 5-4 OT loss to Penticton on Tuesday. Blessed with great size at 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, the dual-citizen of Canada and the U.S. is the son of former NHLer Garth Butcher and has been a streaky scorer throughout his BCHL career.  He had four points in two games starting the season in Langley and he had a goal and an assist in his first game with the Vipers this season.
