An Aldergrove junior hockey player has broken the record of points in scoring and goals in Fresno, California with the Fresno Monsters.

Top forward Mike Nolan notched an astounding 93 points in 42 games last season and has added another 18 in 11 games this season. He tallied 71 points in 41 games in his first season with the club.

Nolan, who previously played with the Yale Secondary Lions (2010-11), the Fraser Valley Bruins major midget team (2011-12) and the Ridge Meadows Flames (2012-13), is entering his third season with the Fresno Monsters. Nolan tallied 25 points in 35 games with the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s Flames.

Nolan, 20, is 5’9″ and weighs 179 lbs.

Nolan and fellow forward Brantt Heble will play their final seasons of junior hockey for the Monsters this year as they will be working to earn an opportunity to play in the NCAA. Both forwards are dynamic, exciting players that played a large role in the Monsters’ potent offense that scored 301 total goals last season, good for first in the Western States Hockey League.

In 2014-2015, Nolan tallied with 35 goals and 58 assists for 93 points in 42 games played for the Monsters and finished third in WSHL scoring. In 81 regular season games with the Monsters, Nolan has scored 67 times while assisting on 90 others for a total of 157 points, which puts him in the race to finish first in all time scoring in Monsters history. A fan favourite, Nolan will look to continue his offensive ways for the 2015-2016 season.

“Mike is a special player and I am thrilled to have him back for his final year of junior hockey. His ability to play the game at a high level and contribute each night is something that not many players his age can achieve” said head coach/general manager Bryce Dale.

“Most importantly, Mike is a fantastic kid that has a ton character and the guys love him. He brings enthusiasm, hard work, and character to our locker room and I am thrilled to have the privilege to coach him in his final season.”
