Glacier Kings hand out hardware

Annual awards night for Yetis sees 13 awards given to players

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings held their annual awards banquet Sunday, April 7 at Yiamas Greek Taverna. Thirteen awards were handed out:

Top Scorer – Tyson Rennie. Academic Award – Garrett Halls; Most Sportsmanlike Player – John Gosbee; Iron Man Award – Wade Bartlett; Hard Hat Award – Jordan Crisp; Unsung Hero – Wade Bartlett; Fan Favourite – Jordan Crisp; Most Improved Player – Calvin Hadley; Rookie of the Year – John Gosbee; Top Goaltender – Michael Hails; Top Forward – Jack Kennelly; Top Defenceman – Garrett Halls; Most Valuable Player – Nicholas Tupper.

“It’s unusual to have the awards, with part of the season, the most important part of the season, still remaining,” said head coach Bill Rotheisler in reference to the Cyclone Taylor Cup, which the Yetis are hosting April 11-14 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

“However, these nights are huge. It’s important that the players are recognized for their hard work. It’s easy to get caught up in the entertaining side of the game, but it’s good to take a moment to appreciate the effort these guys put in all season long,” Rotheisler added.

The team is spending the early part of this week preparing for the Cyclone Taylor Cup.  Details on games and tickets are available at www.glacier
