CCM Hockey Top Forward

CCM Hockey Top Forward Award:

The CCM Hockey Top Forward Award, as selected by the coaches on hand each week, is chosen based not only on a players' performance throughout the week, but also on their intangibles such as coachability, work effort, and overall improvement. It is awarded to the player that is most dominant, and puts forth the best performance, in their group over the course of the week. The weekly winner of the CCM Hockey Top Forward Award will receive a new CCM Tacks one-piece stick.
