The Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks were one of the top clubs in the North West Junior Hockey League regular season, and one of the reasons why was 20 year old forward Wesley Shipton.

For the second time in as many seasons, Shipton has claimed the scoring title in the league.

In 2016-2017, Shipton compiled 27 goals and 25 assists in just 29 games.

This year in a full campaign, the 20-year-old registered 45 goals and 37 assists.

This works out to an average of 2.3 points per game.

As an 18-year-old, Shipton spent the hockey season at the Junior A ranks with a brief stint in Grande Prairie with the Storm, but mostly spent time with the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League's Humboldt Broncos.

Shipton and the Canucks will host the Sexsmith Vipers in game one of their first round best of five series beginning Wednesday night.
