Belle Merrell/Calla Grasley Scholastic Award/WHL Scholastic Player of the Year Nominee 

Sponsored by Deloitte

— Nick McBride

“My tutor makes it really easy on me, she goes and talks to teachers whenever I’m sturggling with something and the teachers have been really accepting and understanding that I might be gone a lot and they cater the work for me to make it easier for me.”

 

 

Dave Balon Leading Scorer Award

Sponsored by Northern Lights Casino

— Leon Draisaitl

“It’s thanks to a lot of teammates who made this happen. Without them I would have zero points. I’m happy about it obviously but a huge thank you to my teammates who made this happen.”

 

 

 

Jim Neilson Most Valuable Defenseman

Sponsored by North Star Signs

— Josh Morrissey

“It’s pretty exciting. It’s a huge honour to win the award. It’s an award that I was lucky enough to win last year with Harrison Ruopp and it was pretty cool. It’s always nice to be honoured with any type of award; it’s pretty special for sure.”

 

 

Prince Albert Raiders Humanitarian Award

Sponsored by Parkland Ambulance

— Sawyer Lange

“It goes to the guy who spends the most time in the community. We focus a lot on that with our team. It’s really important for us to get out in the community and do whatever we can to give back to the fans and the people who support us and pass some of the stuff that we know onto young kids.”

 

 

 

Molson Cup Three Star Awards - Overall

— 1st – Leon Draisaitl,

— 2nd – Reid Gardiner

— 3rd – Cole Cheveldave

 

 

 

Best Defensive Forward Award

— Shane Danyluk

“Top defensive forward feels pretty good because it’s a pretty huge part of the game. You have to play both ends of the ice.”

 

 

 

900 CKBI Radio Three Star Award

— Leon Draisaitl

 

 

 

George Cowie Memorial Rookie of the Year Award

Sponsored by Broda Construction

— Tomas Andrlik

“I feel pretty good. It’s a good thing for me because it was hard at the start of the season with the language and the hockey was different and the players were better. I did my best and everything is good.”

 

 

Century 21 Realty Hardest Working Player of the Year

— Shane Danyluk

“It feels good to be named the hardest working guy on the team. One of my roles is to be working hard every game and setting an example for everybody on the team as a leader here.”

 

 

Ches Leach Most Improved Player of the Year Award

— Mackenze Stewart

“It’s nice to get a little reward for all of my hard work over the season. I wasn’t in the lineup every night at the start and I worked my way up to get there. It’s nice to get noticed for that stuff. I think I have improved my game since the start of camp and I’m looking to improve even more going into next season.”

 

 

Best Conditioned Raider

-- Jayden Hart

Most Inspirational Raider

Sponsored by Source for Sports

— Chance Braid

“It feels pretty good. It’s good to see that guys look up to me. Like Bruce (Vance) said (in the introduction speech), I’m a guy who leads more by example on the ice.”

 

 

Fan Favourite

— Leon Draisaitl

“That’s actually the one that I’m most excited about. It shows me that the people like me and that I’m doing a pretty good job. For me, that’s the most important one because without fans in hockey, especially here in P.A., hockey is nothing. They come out every game and pay a lot of money just to support the boys, so it’s huge. It’s a great honour.”

 

 

Orland Kurtenbach Most Valuable Player Award

— Leon Draisaitl and Josh Morrissey

Josh Morrissey: “Leon has been phenomenal for us this year. He’s been an unreal player for us; look at his stats, his leadership, how much he’s grown since he came over from Germany. He’s a learned a lot about being a leader. He’s come so far and it’s a huge honour to share it with him. To share it with Leon is exciting and humbling too.”

Leon Draisaitl: “Like I’ve said many times, I think he’s the best defenseman in the league. He’s probably the best powerplay quarterback I’ve ever seen at his age. His defensive game is really good too. He’s a tremendous player.”
