Blades Unveil 2019-20 Individual Award Winners
The sudden conclusion of the 2019-20 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic came as a shock to everyone, and it also meant a big change to the way the Saskatoon Blades reveal the winners for its annual individual team awards.
Unfortunately, the Blades were forced to cancel its annual awards banquet - an event that brings players, families, and our most passionate fans together for a special night of celebration and reflection.
