STEELHEADS HUSTLE AWARD - CONNOR CHATHAM

Connor Chatham's work ethic and effort not only make him a valuable player but also make the players around him better.

BILL CAMPBELL COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD - SHANE HANNA

The Bill Campbell Community Service Award is given each season to the Steelheads player who exemplifies the spirit of the organization and works to make the Treasure Valley a better place. This year's winner visited more Treasure Valley elementary schools than any other player. He attended nearly half of the Steelheads' school visits, despite several lengthy stints this year in the American Hockey League.  No Steelhead this season was a more enthusiastic ambassador of the game for the Treasure Valley's youth.

CENTURYLINK THREE STARS AWARD - JEFFERSON DAHL

The CenturyLink Three Stars Award is awarded to the player who was most often named one of the three stars following a Steelheads home game. Dahl was recognized nine times this season on home ice, and was named the game's top star three times this season at CenturyLink Arena. Dahl has spent the season making his mark on the record books. On February 19th, he became the sixth player in Steelheads history to score 200 points in a Steelheads sweater, and he currently ranks third all-time on the Steelheads' ECHL scoring list.

STEELHEADS UNSUNG HERO AWARD - AJ WHITE

STEELHEADS MOST VALUABLE PLAYER - BRADY BRASSART

His 1.11 points per game lead the Steelheads and his plus-25 rating is tied for the lead. Brassart’s nine-game points streak in November was the longest by a Steelhead this season, and at no time during the year did he go more than two games without at least a point. Brassart earned ECHL Player of the Week honors for the first time in his career in March.
