Po­si­tion: For­ward

H-W: 5-ft. 10-in., 175 lbs. Bearcat of the Week hon­ours go to for­ward, Shawn Bily. His sixth goal of the year proved to be the over­time win­ner in Satur­day’s 2-1 win over the Pic­tou County Weeks Crush­ers.

In his 10 Bearcats games, he’s pot­ted six goals and as­sisted on six oth­ers. Com­ing into this week, those num­bers have him tied with Kyle Sex­ton for the scor­ing lead among the Bearcats. He, Gavin Hart and G Black­more have been solid when all are healthy.

Bily re­ceived early in­struc­tion through the Honey Baked Hockey club in Farm­ing­ton Hills, Mich., a pro­gram de­signed to de­vel­op­ing play­ers and en­able them to com­pete at ad­vanced lev­els. One sea­son with the Honey Baked Ma­jor Ban­tams led him to the 2013-14 sea­son where he suited up with the Honey Baked U16 and the New Jer­sey Jr. Ti­tans U16 squads. A 2014 draft pick of the Erie Ot­ters, he suited up with the OHL team for two full sea­sons be­fore split­ting the 2016-17 sea­son be­tween the Ot­ters and Que­bec Ram­parts. Last year he played in the OJHL with the Tren­ton Golden Hawks. To date, he’s dis­played a high skillset, and is ob­vi­ously a good t with the young Bearcats.
