NAPHL announces 2013-14 16U award winners

April 3, 2014

FRISCO, TEXAS – 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 16U 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 16U level was Brian Sherry of the Lansing Capitals. Sherry guided the Capitals to a 15-4-1 record during the regular season, which was an improvement over the team’s 13-9-0 record from the year prior. The Capitals qualified as the #4 seed in the NAPHL playoffs and went onto win the NAPHL 16U Championship, allowing just six goals in five playoff games.
