The 20-year-old, who has committed to the University of Denver for next season, was also a finalist for the league’s MVP award, won by Trey Phillips of the Canmore Eagles, who was also selected as the most outstanding defenceman.

Meanwhile, another Red Deer product, Chris Gerrie of the Olds Grizzlys, is the AJHL rookie of the year.

The 17-year-old forward, who has committed to Michigan Tech University for the 2016-17 season, leads all AJHL rookies in goals, assists and points (18-35-53).

Gerrie was selected as the player of the game five times during his rookie campaign and is the fourth player in Grizzlys franchise history to win the AJHL freshman award.
