It was a busy morning on Saturday for the British Columbia Hockey league with seven players selected in the NHL entry draft in Dallas – one of those hailing from Langley.
In the fifth round at No. 126, the Senators came calling again when they selected Langley Rivermen forward Angus Crookshank, an 18-year-old from North Vancouver.
The 2017 gold medallist with Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge (WJAC) will play at the University of New Hampshire next season.

He’s a left-handed shooter, measuring 5 ft. 11 in., who up until now played left wing for Langley. He scored 45 points in 42 games for the Rivermen last year.
The draft haul punctuates an outstanding 2017-18 season for the BCHL which included a Doyle Cup victory for the Wenatchee Wild and an RBC Cup national title for the Chilliwack Chiefs as well as a record 153 commitments to college hockey.
