Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to team captain, Ben Higgins. In Friday’s 3-2 OT win over Fredericton, he scored two and assisted on the winner. Saturday, in the Shoot Out loss to Yarmouth, he picked up an assist. For the month of February, he contributed 11 goals while assisting on 9 others – a good month’s work.
He came up through the Truro and Area Minor Program, scoring at each level. Following two seasons with the Truro Major Midgets, he spent the 2014-2015 year with the Weeks Midgets. At the end of that season he was named a Bearcat Territorial pick, then chosen in the seventh round by the Halifax Mooseheads. His rookie season in Truro was a solid one when scoring 12 and picking up 11 assists. For the last three years, he was a member of the Mooseheads, finishing with his participation in the Memorial Cup. He developed into a 200 foot forward with speed being a big part of his skill set.
