Islanders goalie Williams, former star Milligan get awards

One current and one former Kerry Park Islander were among the winners as the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League announced some of its award winners last week.

Current goalie Leighton Williams was named one of the winners of the Bob Saunders Community Leadership Award. A rookie this season, Williams had 11 wins and a 4.00 goals-against average over 27 appearances.

Shawnigan Lake’s Alex Milligan was named co-winner of the Top Forward

award. Milligan had 47 points in 35 games with the Isles before he was traded to the Peninsula Panthers, where he put up 26 more points in 13 games.

Milligan and the Panthers are about to begin the league final against Victoria.
