Wolves year-end banquet and McGrath leaves for Slovakia
by Randy Pascal

In a season that would see the Sudbury Wolves make their first playoff appearance in three years, the shining light that was Dmitry Sokolov shone brighter than most.

That much was evident, once again, at the team's year-end banquet, as the soon-to-be 19 year old who came within two goals of hitting the vaunted fifty goal plateau walked off with no less than five separate awards.

Though the top scorer (72 pts) and most goals (48) might have been foregone conclusions, Sokolov would add MVP and playoff MVP honours to the mix, along with the Molson Cup Three Star Award.

Arizona Coyotes' prospect and departing captain Kyle Capobianco was singled out for the "Leadership Award", while "Rookie of the Year" accolades were shared by Owen Lalonde and Jake McGrath.

No surprise that Macauley Carson, who would see his goal total jump from five in his rookie campaign (2015-2016) to 30 this year, was tapped as Most Improved Player.

Following is a breakdown of the remaining awards:

Scholastic Award - Shane Bulitka

Community Service - Michael Pezzetta, Chandler Yakimowicz, Reagan O'Grady

Players' Player - Patrick Sanvido

Top Plus-Minus - Reagan O'Grady

Best Defensive Player - Patrick Sanvido

Community Club Player of the Year - Macauley Carson, Jake McGrath

Most Assists - Kyle Capobianco (37)

In other Wolves' news this week, goaltender Jake McGrath was named to Team Canada that will compete later this month at the 2017 IIHF U18 World Championships, taking place from April 13th to the 23rd in Slovakia.

In 45 games as an OHL freshman, the Mississauga native recorded a goals against average of 3.77 and save percentage of 89.6%, with a win-loss mark of 17-18-6, playing behind a team that would secure a playoff berth only in the final weekend of the regular season.
