EDMONTON – With the Canada West semifinals set for this weekend, the conference released the 2019-20 all-star and all-rookie teams Tuesday.
The three teams serve as a showcase of the country's top university players, with the CW major awards set to be announced Wednesday, March 4 at 1 p.m. MST.
Leading the charge on the first all-star team were the Trinity Western Spartans and Alberta Golden Bears. The pair finished one-two during the CW regular season and both landed two players on the top team, with TWU represented by Derek Epp and Eric Loepkky, while Alberta's Max Elgert and Jackson Kennedy made the team.
Both teams are set to host best-of-three semifinals this weekend, as the No. 1 Spartans welcome the defending CW champion Brandon Bobcats beginning Thursday, while the Bears host the UBC Thunderbirds.
