2016-17 BCHL Top Goalie – #30 Darion Hanson – The BCHL Junior A hockey league handed out its annual hardware this past week and grabbing Top Goalie honours was Vernon Viper netminder #30 Darion Hanson. The 19-year-old Minnesota native started the season in the USHL with the Youngstown Phantoms but was acquired by the Vernon Vipers in late November to bolster the team’s back-end. The Vipers began the season with two 17-year-old goalies and were looking to get some more experience between the pipes.
In 21 games, the 6’3″ 181 lbs goalie has put up some fantastic numbers including 1.84 GAA and a .945 Save%. He posted two shut-outs and recorded 14 wins in 21 starts. He also was named the Vernon Vipers MVP this season as well.
Unfortunately for the Vipers, Hanson has locked up an NCAA scholarship with the Union Dutchmen in New York for next season.
