BURLINGTON, ON — Ontario University Athletics (OUA) has unveiled its annual men’s hockey major award winners and All-Stars for the 2017-18 season.
Carleton Ravens third-year team captain Brett Welychka (London, ON) has garnered All-Star status for the second time in his career, as the 5-foot-10, 188-pound winger has been named an OUA East Second-Team All-Star.
Welychka led Carleton in scoring for the second time in three seasons, recording a team-high 31 points. The psychology major sniped 12 goals – including five power play tallies and three game winners – and provided 19 helpers (T-12th in OUA) in 28 games, however, he did not appear in Carleton’s first-round playoff loss to uOttawa due to injury.
The former U SPORTS Rookie of the Year finishes his Carleton career ranked 6th on the school’s modern-era scoring list, despite only competing for three seasons. Welychka registered 98 points (26 G/ 62 A) in just 72 games, placing him first on the Ravens’ modern-era points per game list with 1.36 PPG.
The London, ON earned OUA First-Team All-Star recognition, as well as the conference’s East Rookie of the Year award, in 2015-16.
Since completing his third and final season with the Ravens, Welychka has signed an amateur tryout contract with the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose, the minor league affiliate of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets.
