And we’re off! A new season means a fresh batch of candidates for our annual Minor Hockey Player of the Year Award. Since 2000, the award has been honouring players in their CHL draft year who are at the top of their game and exemplify a strong commitment to sportsmanship, leadership, and school and community participation.
Josh Williams was four years old when he parked himself in front of the television and witnessed the sport of hockey for the first time. Little did he know, it was the start of something life-changing.
We couldn’t be prouder of the HockeyNow Minor Hockey Player of the Year Award and what it represents for minor hockey. For the 18th year, we will be presenting the award to a player in each B.C., Alberta, and Ontario who not only shows great hockey ability, but also brings strong sportsmanship and leadership to the table as well as proven participation in their school and community.
The minor Hockey Player of the Year race is especially top of mind at HockeyNow as we look ahead to watching former players of the year Mathew Barzal (2012 winner) and Dante Fabbro (2013 winner) wear the red and white at the World Junior Championships at the end of the month.
With the hockey season underway, it’s time for HockeyNow to once again begin the search for our Player of the Year in B.C., Alberta and Ontario. The Player of the Year award has a rich history and was first given to Colin Fraser in 2000, who went on to win two Stanley Cups.
