Steelheads 2015-16 Regular Season Awards

Prior to the season finale on Saturday night, the Idaho Steelheads distributed their regular-season awards for the 2015-16 campaign. The following players were recognized for their outstanding contributions this year.

Rookie of the Year: Zack Kamrass

Kamrass brought an offensive touch to the Idaho blue line this season. He joined the Steelheads for last spring's playoff run and provided an immediate offensive impact. In 2015-16, he picked up right where he left off, with four goals and 24 points to lead all Steelheads rookies in scoring.

Top Defenseman Award: Corbin Baldwin

In his first year as a Steelhead, Baldwin recorded a career-high 20 points, but it's on defense and on the penalty kill where his impact is felt most. His plus-28 rating was third among ECHL defenseman, and from December 18th to February 23rd, he went 27 games without a minus rating.

Steelheads Hustle Award: Jefferson Dahl

The Steelheads Hustle Award belongs to a player whose work ethic and effort not only makes him a valuable player but makes the players around him better. Dahl finished his second season with the Steelheads tied for the team lead with 22 goals and lead the Steelheads with 10 power play goals. From December 16th to December 26th, he scored a goal in four straight games, and all of them on the power play. Dahl recorded three separate 4-point games this season.

Bill Campbell Community Service Award: Andrew Carroll

The Bill Campbell Community Service Award is given each season to the Steelhead player who exemplifies the spirit of the organization and works to make the Treasure Valley a better place. Carroll attended more than half of the Steelheads' school visits this season and is the 2015-16 leading scorer in elementary school floor hockey.

Cal Ingraham Leading Scorer Award: Rob Linsmayer

Linsmayer had his best professional season in 2015-16. In his fourth season in Idaho, he set career-highs in goals, assists, and points. Linsmayer recorded 15 multi-point games and finished the season just two points shy of career regular-season point number 100.

CenturyLink Top Star Award: Rob Linsmayer

Linsmayer was named a CenturyLink Star of the Game nine times at CenturyLink Arena during the regular season, and the game's Top Star four times.

Steelheads Unsung Hero Award: Carson McMillan

McMillan's impact goes well beyond his 19 goals and 34 points, though his two hat tricks this season did grab headlines. In addition to his offense, McMillan has been one of the Steelheads' best penalty-killers and most valuable face-off men. His veteran leadership during his first season in Idaho has been instrumental to the success of this season.

Steelheads Most Valuable Player: Emil Molin

Molin was tied for the team lead with 22 goals during his first season in North America, racking up 46 points in 53 games. One of the team's best defensive forwards, Molin's plus-22 rating ranks second among Steelheads forwards. Molin was always theplayer to come through with the big playon both sides of the puck, and he made his teammates better.
