Trappers Trevor Hunt named playoff MVP
NORTH BAY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Wednesday that North Bay Trappers forward Trevor Hunt has been named the most valuable player for the 2013 NOJHL playoffs.
Hunt was presented the award by NOJHL Commissioner Robert Mazzuca following the Trappers 3-1 game 7 victory over the Soo Thunderbirds to capture the Copeland Cup-McNamara Trophy, emblematic of league playoff champions at Memorial Gardens.
In 12 postseason contests the 20-year-old Mississauga native registered 10 points on three goals and seven assists, including setting up all three North Bay tallies in Wednesday’s series-deciding game 7.
Earlier this season Hunt was named the recipient of the Gilles Laperriere Trophy, which goes annually to the league’s most improved player.
Now Hunt and the rest of his North Bay teammates will gear up to host the Dudley-Hewitt Cup Central Canada Jr. A championship April 30-May 4 at Memorial Gardens.
They will be joined by the Soo Thunderbirds as the second NOJHL team at the five-day event along with the St. Michael’s Buzzers (OJHL) and Minnesota Wilderness (SIJHL) to see who will represent the region at the Royal Bank Cup May 11-19 in Summerside, P.E.I.
