Bearcat of the Week hon­ours go to vet­eran for­ward Den­ver Lynds.

In Game 2 of the Mar­itime Ju­nior Hockey League fi­nal, he was a force, pick­ing up one goal and three as­sists and was named the game’s first star.

Throw in some hits, which ruf­fled the high-fly­ing Tim­ber­wolves, and you have a great piece of lead­er­ship.

The game was as close to a must-win for the Bearcats, and Lynds de­liv­ered.

Lynds got his hockey start in the West Colch­ester Co­bras pro­gram be­fore switch­ing to the Truro and Area Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion.

Mid­way through his first ban­tam sea­son, he suited up with the Har­ring­ton Ice­berg Prep pro­gram in Que­bec. At the mid­get level he split his time be­tween the Weeks Crush­ers and the On­tario Hockey Acad­emy Mav­er­icks.

The 2012 Bearcat ter­ri­to­rial pick re­ported for his rookie sea­son in 2013-2014. His phys­i­cal and de­ter­mined play have been his trade­marks.

He and Kyle Tibbo are the two holdovers from the 2013-2014 Kent Cup team, which went on to play in the Fred Page Cup in St. Jerome, Que.

Lynds fin­ished this sea­son with 17 goals and 22 as­sists and has been a threat in many ways in this play­off run.

Game 4 is set to go at the RECC Satur­day at 7 p.m., while Game 5 re­turns to Mi­ramichi Mon­day. For­ward Den­ver Lynds has been a key player for the Bearcats dur­ing the play­offs. The vet­eran for­ward has scored some timely goals and has de­liv­ered some big hits.
