MJHL announces award winners and all-star team selections

Members of the Portage Terriers won five of six major awards, Manitoba Junior Hockey League Commissioner Kim Davis announced today. The MJHL also released its all-star teams today.

Heading the award winners was Terriers’ power forward Brad Bowles, who was named the MJHL’s most valuable player.  Currently, the 20-year-old from Elkhorn tops the MJHL scoring race with 96 points (40-56) in 56 games.

Other Terriers’ to win awards were Nick Henry, Brett Orr, Nathan Park and head coach Blake Spiller.

“Every player should be commended for their outstanding performance over the regular season,” said Davis. “Coaches of the league vote and make the selections. These selections are extremely difficult to make. The talent level in our league is reflective in how difficult it was to select these respective teams.”
