2015-2016 Varsity Captains
2014-2015 Award Winners
The 2014-2015 MVP was awarded to Junior Emerson Mahoney. Emerson's speed and hockey IQ are obvious watching the winger in all situations, he was used in every facet of team play this past season. Emerson was also selected to the EAC All-Star team with a team leading 29 points along with a +10 rating. He was also an Iron Man Award recipient for his dedication to the sport and perfect attendance. Emerson was the team's only High Honor Roll student athlete the past season.
The Most Improved Player was awarded to Junior Bryce Nelson. Bryce showed his hard hat work ethic each day he was on the ice and was key in all defensive zone face-offs he took. His offensive skills improved daily and we look for him to be a major factor in the 2015-2016 season. He centered a line of players who wasted little time having an immediate impact when they touched the ice, his will to compete and putting the team first are his most admirable traits as a teammate.
The Coaches Award was awarded to Senior Nick Kent. Nick showed his ability to improve and put the team first more than any player this coach can remember. He started his high school career as a defenseman his freshman year, then moved to goaltender his sophomore year as there was a shortage in the program, made the Varsity team as a forward his Junior year, then moved back to goaltender for his senior year. His athletic abilities coupled with his will to compete made his unique career possible. Nick also received the Iron Man Award for perfect attendance throughout the season. He finished the season playing 525 minutes with a 2.49 goals against average. He will find a team to play with next season and test his untapped abilities in net.
The second Coaches Award was awarded to Junior Steven Brown. Steven's unharnessed speed has shown his ability to disrupt the opponent's plan, he's also not shy about contact! He played defense his first two seasons and was moved to forward this past season, when the issue was discussed he only said he wanted what was best for the team and was thankful for the opportunity. Steven will have a major impact on the team next season as his off-season work ethic will be on display, he will commit this off season and come back adding to our offensive scheme. He was also awarded the Iron Man Award for perfect attendance.
The Plus/Minus Award was awarded to Nick Vukota with a +12 rating. Nick proved to be a tough defender to play against once he simplified his game. His work ethic and will to compete were on display every time he touched the ice. Nick was also awarded the Iron Man Award for his perfect attendance. After suffering a season ending injury his freshman year Nick has worked quickly to catch up to his quick growth spurt. He is the ultimate teammate on the ice knowing that his defensive role was to protect the soft area's of the ice, players thought twice about crashing the net when he was on the ice.
