Smoke Eaters forward Mitch Foyle has earned an honourable mention for BCHL Player of the Week after a career weekend that saw the 16 year-old nearly double his point total
Foyle put up three assists in Friday's 4-1 win over Salmon Arm, then scored the Smokies' only goal on a third-period re-direction Saturday against West Kelowna. The Fruitvale product now has 9 points on the season, four of which are goals.

Foyle's far from the loudest kid on the Smoke Eaters bench (and bus), but earning some recognition for his hard work at the league level is sure to boost an already-rising confidence level. His pass on Tyler Berkholtz's give-and-goal Friday against Salmon Arm showed poise and a flash of a promise for the future. Along with the likes of locals Scott Davidson and Jake Lucchini, Foyle will be a big part of the Smoke Eaters core in years to come, and this week's honourable mention is the first glimpse into the future for a kid that has all the tools to be an impact player in this league.
