After one of the tightest regular season races in recent history the following individuals were recognized for their outstanding contribution to their teams successes. The regular season standings finished with six points separating the top seven teams. A well balanced division it was a remarkable and entertaining season that we’ve ever experienced in a Downsview Park Tier 2 Division.
The Leading Scorer for the winter season was Frankie Giustini of the Vaughan Pylons. Once again this scoring wizard averaged over two points per game. He amassed 33 scoring points on 19 goals and 14 assists to lead all participants. The Pylons also placed the next two scorers as Matt Martello and Justin Rita finished second and third respectively.
Leading his club to a first place finish the Top Goaltender is awarded to Raza Zaidi of the Toronto Hitmen. Raza finished second in wins, goal against average, save percentage and shutouts. Congratulations to Raza on a remarkable season.
Randy Kelly is an explosive, dynamic forward and has been named the Top Forward for the winter season. Randy led his Flyers team with 18 points on 7 goals and 11 assists. Randy will be a dominant force at the Tier 2 level for years to come.
The TBB finished in second place thanks mainly to their defensive play. Leading the defensive core and this year’s recipient as Top Defencemen was Carlos Arce. Carlos is a solid two way defender that’s not afraid to jump in to the rush to add that element of offence from the back end. He plays mega minutes and is the quiet leader of the group.
Two teams that excelled in the winter season both had their management recognized. Jason Mallais of the Leafs Reloaded saw his team move up four seeds into the number three spot from the fall season and their consistent play and additions earned Jason the Top GM of the Tier 2 division. Leading his team to the division regular season championship this season’s winner as Coach of the Year is Ricky Ventresca of the Toronto Hitmen.
Congratulations to all the award winners on an excellent season.
