Fort St. John's Reid Campbell, Rick Cleaver win NPHL awards

The NPHL announced its regular season award winners for the 2018-19 regular season today. Taking home major awards for the Fort St. John Senior Flyers were Reid Campbell for Best Defenceman and Rick Cleaver for Best Left Wing. 

From Chris Clegg at "Fort St. John’s Reid Campbell has won his first NPHL Best Defenceman award, and becomes the third Flyer overall to win the award. Campbell posted 10-22-32 points this season to place him second on the Flyers and 10th overall in the NPHL. But points were not his only forte, he combined strong defensive play in helping the Flyers to the third best defensive record in the NPHL."

The previous Flyers players to win Best Defenceman were Bryan Lewis (2005-06) and Kip Noble (2007-08, 2008-09).

Cleaver won his third award for Best Left Wing in the last four seasons. He had 17 goals, 20 assists, and 37 points, good enough for seventh most points in the league and first on the Flyers. Cleaver had won the NPHL MVP award the last three seasons. This year, the award went to the man who co-won the award with Cleaver last year — Manning Commets goalie Braden Gamble. This is Gamble's fourth time winning league MVP.

Cleaver and Campbell also won West Division All-Star honours, for best left win and defenceman, respectively. Joining them is teammate Lien Miler-Jeannotte at right wing. Miller-Jeannotte received the same amount of votes as Brett Norman of the Dawson Creek Senior Canucks, and both were named All-Stars.
