The league’s first star, for the second month in a row and third time overall this season, is Summerside Western Capitals forward TJ Shea. In ten games, the 19 year old from Tignish, PEI put on an offensive clinic, scoring eight goals and adding 20 assists. Not only did Shea record a point in each of his team’s games in January, extending his point streak to 32 games by the end of the month, he registered multiple points in all but one of those contests. Highlights included a five point outing on January 14th against the Yarmouth Mariners and four point efforts against the St. Stephen Aces and Edmundston Blizzard on the 13th and 25th, respectively. Shea holds a sizeable lead in the lead scoring race with 89 points in 38 games entering the month of February.
