Team Awards

The British Columbia Hockey League announced their annual trophy winners on Tuesday and the Spruce Kings will announce their team awards on Wednesday during the annual Player's Awards Banquet. Awards include the only non-player award - the Volunteer of the Year.

The only trophy presentation that is no secret heading into the banquet is the annual recognition given to the team's top scorer. This year the standout rookie, Jujhar Khaira will lay claim to that trophy finishing the season with 42 points and one of only two Gordie Howe Hat Tricks on the season.

Into its fifth season of existence, the newest team trophy recognizes the work and dedication that a player has for the community he plays hockey in - the Craig Dzuiballe Memorial Trophy for Outstanding Community Service. Previous winners include RJay Berra, Zach Davies, Peter Funnell and Ryan DeVries.

Also a relatively new trophy that recognizes achievement in the education arena - the Scholastic Player of the Year trophy will be awarded to its sixth recipient. Previous winners include RJay Berra (2x), Kevin Genoe, Jordan Inglis and Patrick Sullivan.

The rest of the hardware will put players that receive these trophies in the elite company of some of the most recognized and remembered Spruce Kings alumni. Up for grabs will be the Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Player, Most Inspirational Player, Most Dedicated Player, Defenceman of the Year, the Seventh Player and the regular season MVP.
