Bryn Thorne (Leafs) - Bryn score the Leafs first goal and had lots of scoring opportunities. Making Bryn our MVP! Woo Yeah



Erica Lawrence (Bruins) - Erica played an outstanding defensive game this week. She blocked shots, made some spectacular poke checks, had her stick in the right place at the right time and made some great passes to clear the zone in some clutch situations. Great game this week Erica!!


Chelsea Bilton (Hawks) - Chelsea was such a solid defence this week, making unreal plays to keep the puck out of our zone. And she is always happy to play wherever the team needs - such a team player! Way to go Chels!



Justin Pelletier (Rangers) - You can always count on Justin to give his teammates great hockey tips on the bench and with a short bench this week Justin gave his all making excellent passes and setting up plays earning him this weeks Ranger Danger MVP. 


Ashleigh Hampson (Wings) - Ashleigh has been amazing through the season playing wing! She is always putting up a good fight against other teams’ strong players and giving it her all every game! Keep it up! Go Wings Go! 



Shawn “babyface” Hamilton (Ducks) - Guy turns 40 and looks 20 years younger! Played like a 20 year old also.  All over the ice - 2 apples - hard back check! Great game Shawn, happy birthday. 


Manon Brochu (Sabres) - Even though Manon knew she was leaving the Sabres after the game, she gave us a 100% effort and helped the Sabres tie the Ducks! All the best going forward with the Oilers, don't forget us.



Dan Murawski (Flames) - Welcome to the Flames Dan! Dan Murawski was on FIRE on the blue line in his first game as a Flame! Blocks, shots, passes, he did it all! Glad to have you Dan! Belated-Congrats to Matty Higgins for keeping us in the game last week with a stellar performance btw the pipes.


Sandra Jarvis (Sharks) - Sandra is always ready to help our team out, and always a solid defensive player. Sandra always seems to save our butts and stay back for defense when everyone else wants to go for a skate. Great game to all the Sharks keep the passing and digging for the puck up! 



Cindy Shantz (Oilers) - As the calendar turned towards the Christmas season, who was the Oilers MVP against the Canucks. It was Cindy - that's who! Cindy played a strong game on D, swatting the puck away from very speedy Canuck wingers.


Christian Parker AKA New Guy (Canucks) - New Guy had an outstanding game on D! He played his heart out, back-checked hard, and made his tendy proud with his awareness. He also had a filthy end-to-end rush that resulted in a top cheese snipe for the game winner. Great work New Guy! PS work on your autograph buddy!
