#81 Colby Lanceleve
5’8, 160 lbs
This week’s Bearcat-of-the-Week is third year forward Colby Lanceleve.
Scoring a hat trick was reason enough for the honour, but most nights his tenacious play and gritty leadership would make him a candidate for the nomination.
Coming into this week, he’s moved up the team scoring chart to share the lead with Tyler Morrison, each with four goals and four assists.
He got his hockey start in the South Colchester program before moving to the AAA levels in the Truro association. After two seasons at both the peewee and bantam levels prepared him for a productive two-year stint with the Pictou County major midgets.
The 2010 Territorial pick of the Bearcats quickly established a reputation for his relentless forecheck and quickly became a fan favorite.
In last Saturday’s outing he skated alongside Jeff Hanes and newcomer, Jacob Smith. The line accounted for four goals and picked up three assists. Lanceleve was first star and Smith garnered the third.
Tonight, the Bearcats are in Yarmouth for a 7:30 p.m. game with the Mariners. This should be another hotly contested Eastlink Division matchup.
