Wolves Announce Year End Award Winners
(Greater Sudbury, ON) As the dust settles on the 2018-19 record breaking season, the Sudbury Wolves are pleased to announce their 2018-19 season award winners.
The Wolves finished the 2018-19 campaign with a record of 43-20-3-2. The 43 victories were the most since 1994-95, and was just four wins shy of the franchise record established in 1975-76 by the team that boasted Ron Duguay, Mike Foligno and Randy Carlyle.
After sweeping the Mississauga Steelheads in the opening round of the playoffs, the Wolves fell to the OHL Regular Season Champions and newly-crowned Bobby Orr Trophy winners, the Ottawa 67's.
"It was a very successful season," said Sudbury Wolves VP Hockey Operations and General Manager Rob Papineau. "Everyone stepped up this year and had an impact on the ice. Quinton Byfield had an outstanding rookie campaign which was topped off by being named OHL Rookie of the Year last week. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen was phenomenal in net, earning a gold medal at the World Juniors and was unanimously voted OHL Goaltender of the Year. He gave the team a chance to win game in and game out. Murray, Ross, Bulitka, Carson, and Levin each had milestone seasons as well. We are very excited to have the majority of the team set to return next year, which will make for a competitive camp," he added.
The Sudbury Wolves would like to congratulate all of the players on a fantastic season as well as thank our fans for their tremendous support!
Select members of the team will also join the prospects on May 11th and 12th at Countryside Arena for the team's orientation camp. More details on the camp will be released in the coming weeks.
