Dewitt netted a hat-trick against the Chase Heat on Dec. 5, his second of the season, and scored the winner against Kelowna on Dec. 9. Eagles Head Coach-GM Nick Deschenes said the hometown product is “a young, up-and-coming player.”
“He’s been very opportunistic the last couple of games. We’re a pretty balanced offensive group,” said Deschenes. “If someone like him is contributing like that, then our chances of winning a game are definitely a lot higher.”
Dewitt is fourth overall among KIJHL points leaders with 13 goals and 24 assists in 26 games. His 37 points leads all KIJHL rookies.
