Langley Rivermen forward Austin Azurdia has been named the BCHL Player of the Week for the week ending October 7, the league announced Monday.

Azurdia guided the Rivermen to a pair of home wins over the Prince George Spruce Kings and was named 1st Star both nights. The Wenatchee, Washington native punctuated his performance with a highlight-reel game-winner with 0.3 seconds to go in the second game.

The 6-foot, 180-pounder scored twice in Saturday's 3-2 come-from-behind win and added two more goals Sunday including a goal-of-the-year candidate in the dying seconds. Azurdia finished the weekend with four goals and an assist and now has nine points in eight games.

Honourable mentions this week go to:

Chilliwack Chiefs F Josh Hansen (three goals, three assists, 1st Star, 2nd Star)

Salmon Arm SilverBacks D Shane Hanna (three goals, one assist, 1st Star)

Penticton Vees F Wade Murphy (two goals, four assists)

Alberni Valley Bulldogs G Jay Deo (two wins, .974 save percentage, 1st Star, 2nd Star)

Here's the goal Azurdia scored to beat PG on Sunday:
