Jacob Fancy is this week’s Bearcat-of-the-week.
Fancy backstopped the Bearcats to two weekend victories over the Summerside Western Capitals On Saturday and Sunday. In both games, he made key saves at key times to prevent any Capitals comeback.
He’s been vocal and a leader on the ice. In six outings this season, he’s responded with five wins en route to a 2.17 GAA and .923 save percentage.
He got started in hockey in Sackville, working his way through the AAA ranks. A pair of seasons with the major midget Halifax Titans provided him valuable experiences well beyond regular-season play. In 2010-11, he helped his club win provincials and Atlantics, earning exposure in the Telus Cup.
He also tended goal for Nova Scotia at the Canada Games in Halifax.
In 2011-12, his 1.62 GAA and .930 save percentage helped Halifax to another provincial championship.
A 2011 Cape Breton Screaming Eagles pick and a 2012 Bearcats draft selection, he put together a strong rookie MHL season finishing with a 2.20 GAA and .915 save percentage and gained huge minutes in the Royal Bank Cup.
Tonight, the Bearcats are at the RECC hosting the Miramichi Timberwolves at 7 p.m.
Tomorrow night, the Bridgewater Lumberjacks come to town at 7 p.m.
