Andrew Pettitt (5ft 11in, 180lbs ... Oct. 22nd 1990) the BCHL's Powell River Kings leading goal scorer (29g-20a in 46 games) has committed to the Seawolves for 2011.
Andrew is from Jared Tuton's hometown of Whitehorse in The Yukon. He has increased his point per game production from 08-09 (his first year of Junior A) from .4 per game to 1.1 this season. That sort of progression is a great signal of a player's development curve.
Andrew played in the Dec. 12th BCHL All-Star game. He currently has the 6th most goals in the BCHL this season. Powell River is 2nd in the B's Coastal Conference with a 28-13-1 record.
In the Powell River New Release, the Kings Head Coach and General Manager Kent Lewis said,
“In his second year in our program Andrew is developing his raw talent into becoming a goal scorer. As he continues to improve the Seawolves will have a player who should help them with offense that can be hard to come by.”
I had some inkling that UAA might be looking at Andrew earlier in the season when someone dropped his name to me earlier this season. He looks like a nice addition and sure ought to be one of that league's leading scorers next season. Welcome to the recruit list here Andrew. We'll keep track of you and hopefully point out some outstanding moments for you the rest of the season and next year.
