Bearcat-of-the-week honours rookie defenceman Tim Porter. Last June, the Bearcats chose Porter and fellow defenceman Simon Mullen as 'Territorials' in the U-18 draft. To date, Porter has appeared in 20 games as part of a young defensive corps. He has grown his game with the responsibilities afforded him and brings an offensive upside, as well as a desire to learn all aspects of the position. He came up through the West Colchester Minor Hockey Association to the U-18 minor level where he suited up with the Fundy Thunder, playing 35 games while also gaining some time with the Pictou County U-18 Major Weeks. He followed a similar route for the 2019-20 season, then last year played full time for Weeks, stepping up offensively with seven goals and 16 assists. He has taken the less travelled route to junior but has made, so far, the most out of it.
