Pair of assists gives Trinity Western's Mattias Schmitt 72 career points

With a pair of assists, Mattias Schmitt etched his name atop the Trinity Western men’s hockey team all-time points list.

Schmitt set up two goals in his team’s 7-1 victory on Saturday night over the Eastern Washington Eagles.

The B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League game was played at the EWU Recreation Centre with the win improving TWU to 13-7-0-2 on the season.

For his career, Schmitt has 72 points — 28 goals and 44 assists — to move him ahead of Josh MacKnee, who accumulated 30 goals and 41 assists in 50 games from 2007 to 2009.

The Spartans also beat the Eagles 3-2 the night before to earn all four points from the weekend and move within three points of the second-place Selkirk Saints.

In that game, Dirk de Waal tied the score early in the third and Jacob Mills bagged the winner.

Jamie Russell had the other TWU goal while goaltender Silas Matthys returned from a month-long injury to make 36 saves.

The next night saw the Spartans offence erupt for the season-high seven goals, including six in the second period.

Florian Niedermaier scored twice, while Russell, Blair Murphy, Matthew Vela, de Waal and Grange Gordon potted one goal apiece.

A dozen Spartan players had at least one point.

Matthys stopped 20 of the 21 shots he faced.

The Spartans host Selkirk on Feb. 27  at the Langley Events Centre before closing the regular season on March 4 against Victoria at the George Preston Recreation Centre.
