Logan Stankoven’s assault on the Thompson Blazers’ record book continued last weekend.

The 15-year-old Kamloops product racked up a franchise-record eight points for the Thompson Blazers in a 10-0 victory over the Kootenay Ice in B.C. Major Midget League play at Sandman Centre on Sunday.

Stankoven scored a hat-trick to bring his season total to 43 goals, one shy of the league record held by Tyson Jost, who tallied 44 goals for the Okanagan Rockets in the 2013-2014 campaign.

Jost needed 36 games to reach the mark. Stankoven has played 32 games and six games remain on the Blazers’ regular-season schedule.

The St. Ann’s Academy student has 84 points this season. Alexander Kerfoot holds the record for most points in one BCMML campaign, with 108 in 38 games in 2010-2011.

In January, Stankoven compiled six assists in two games for Thompson to become the club’s all-time leading scorer, surpassing Alex Rodgers of Salmon Arm, who had 67 points in 2005-2006.

Stankoven will represent B.C., along with Thompson teammate Tyson Galloway, at the Canada Winter Games, which get underway on Friday in Red Deer.

Thompson (16-14-1) is fifth in league standings and in action next against the South Island Royals on Feb. 23. Game time is 6:30 p.m. at Sandman Centre.

Stankoven may be forced to miss the Feb. 23 tilt if Team B.C. is still alive at the Canada Winter Games. The gold-medal game is slated for 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 22.
