Impressive weekend for Toth, Kochan

by Scott Ludwig

Presley Toth and Josh Kochan. If you haven't heard the names yet, let us introduce you. 

A native of Saskatoon, Presley Toth is currently fifth among WSHL leading scorers with 25 points. 

The Bombers rookie leads the team with 13 goals and 12 assists in 11 games so far this season.

The 17-year old had a weekend to remember scoring seven goals and 13 points in three games played on the road. The stretch began on Friday when Toth scored a goal and added a pair of assists helping the Bombers earn a point in a shootout loss.

Saturday night in Enoch will be one for the memory bank as Toth scored a natural hat trick (plus one) - all in the first period! He would go on to score another while adding three helpers in the 9-6 victory.

Playing their third game in a 22-hour period Toth wrapped up the weekend with a goal and assist in the Bombers 7-3 loss at Vegreville.

Born 13 days after Toth in Oregon, the American Canadian Joshua Kochan played his youth hockey for the Canadian Athletic Club in Edmonton.

Kochan scored his first career hat trick while adding a helper against Hinton. He followed that performance by scoring twice on Saturday and again Sunday. Kochan notched 11 points in the three games increasing his season total to 18 points in nine games.
