NAPHL announces 2013-14 18U award winners

April 4, 2014

The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) has announced All-NAPHL First, Second and Third Teams, as well as its All-Academic Team in the 18U division for the 2013-14 season.  In order to be considered for selection, players must have been nominated by their respective coaches.  After that, selection is based on player performance in all NAPHL regular season and playoff games throughout the 2013-14 season.

“We congratulate all those who were recognized for their efforts this past season,” said NAHL Commissioner and President Mark Frankenfeld.  “Now five years into our history, the NAPHL continues to raise the bar each season with more exposure for the players as we continue to be one of the best Tier I youth leagues under the USA Hockey umbrella. It is thanks in large part to the commitment to excellence that is shared by the hard work of the players and the dedication of the coaching staffs and parents.”

The NAPHL is also pleased to announce that it has named a Coach of the Year at both the 18U and 16U levels for the first time. The 2013-14 NAPHL Coach of the Year at the 18U level was David Wilkie of the Omaha AAA Hockey Club. Wilkie took over the coaching duties for the 18U team this past season in addition to his 16U duties. The club tied for the top spot in the 18U Division with 42 points and a 20-2-2 record, which was an improvement over the team’s 12-5-5 record from the year prior. Omaha went onto win the NAPHL 18U Championship this past season, as they allowed just five goals in five playoff games on their way to their first NAPHL 18U Championship in program history.
