Blades Unveil 2019-20 Individual Award Winners

March 27, 2020 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Saskatoon Blades News Release

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.

But while the team was unable to bring everyone together under one roof, it didn't stop us from working with our greatest fans to unveil each award winner, one way or another.

Here are the winners of the 2019-20 Individual Team Awards, as presented by those who cheer on the Blue and Gold
