QUEBEC CITY, QC: A Fall River hockey player in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has garnered monthly honours for his team for the month of November.

Andrew Coxhead, who dons the no. 20 jersey with the Quebec Remparts, was named the QMJHL Scholastic Player of the Month for his Remparts, who sit fifth in the 18 team league at 20-10-2-2 (won-loss-overtime loss-shootout loss) as of Dec. 15.

In a release, the QMJHL says the idea of the Scholastic Players of the Month is to recognize student athletes’ performances both on the ice and at school. The players are selected for their school results, their implication, the school-hockey conciliation, their team spirit and their on-ice performances.

Coxhead has tallied four goals and nine assists in 34 games this season, with 14 penalty minutes and a plus/minus-11. In 56 games played in his rookie campaign last year, he had five goals and eight assists, 14 penalty minutes, and was a plus/minus of -21.
