The votes are in and the B.C. Hockey League announced its all-star teams.

Robson made the first all-star team, along with Wenatchee Wild forwards Brendan Harris and Charlie Combs, Chilliwack Chiefs forward Jordan Kawaguchi and defencemen Cameron Ginnetti from the Langley Rivermen and Tyler Anderson of the Prince George Spruce Kings.

Cruikshank was selected to the All-Rookie team with (F) Cam Donaldson of the Powell River Kings, (F) Zach Risteau of the Merritt Centennials, (D) Michael Ufberg of the Vernon Vipers, (D) Trevor Cosgrove of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and goalie Jacob Berger of the Merritt Centennials.

The teams were selected by the BCHL’s play-by-play broadcasters who surveyed the top players. It was a weighted vote with players receiving points in the tally-based on the order they were ranked by each broadcaster.
