Former Victoria Grizzlies goalie and Greater Victoria resident Nic Renyard had a stellar season with the Alberta Junior (A) Hockey League's Okotoks Oilers

Former Grizzlies goalie up for Canadian hockey awards

Nic Renyard of Saanich nominated for national junior A MVP, top goalie honours

Nic Renyard, cut loose by the Victoria Grizzlies before the 2014-15 season, made a splash instead with the Okotoks Oilers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

The Saanich resident not only captured the AJHL’s most valuable player and top goalie awards for this season, he is one of five finalists for those two awards in all of Canadian junior ‘A’ hockey.

Renyard, 20, won a league-high 30 games to go along with eight losses and three ties, and shared the AJHL’s best save percentage of .924, while posting a 2.19 goals against average. His five shutouts set a new Okotoks team record.

The season saw Renyard go 12-0-1 in his first 13 starts. He racked up five first-star game honours and was player of the month in October.

The Oilers finished third in the AJHL’s South Division in the regular season and were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the Brooks Bandits.

Renyard is committed to the University of Massachusetts for the 2015-16 NCAA Hockey East Div. 1 season.
