Former T-Bird Captain Lockhart Sets Canada West Record

Burnaby’s Luke Lockhart had a record-setting night for the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds last week.

The Western Hockey League grad scored three shorthanded goals in the T-Birds’ 9-2 victory over Lethbridge on Nov. 29. The three shorties set a new Canada West collegiate conference hockey record for Lockhart.

Lockhart, a former team captain with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL, also tied another conference mark with two shorthanded goals in a single period, opening the scoring for the visitors with a pair on the penalty kill in the first period.

UBC’s four goals while shorthanded were one shy of another Canada West record.

Lockhart led the way for UBC with a four-point effort in the win over Lethbridge.
