Co-captain Liam Foudy is the London Knights nominee for the OHL’s most prestigious individual honour.
The Blue Jackets first-rounder was the club’s choice for the Red Tilson Trophy, which is awarded annually to the league’s most outstanding player. It is voted on by sports writers and broadcasters.
Foudy finished with 28 goals and 68 points in 45 games, ranking third on the team behind Connor McMichael (102) and defenceman Ryan Merkley (76). He was also one of the best defensive forwards and penalty killers in junior hockey this season, leading the Knights to first place in the Western Conference
The 20-year-old from Scarborough also played two NHL games in February as an emergency callup and recorded his first big league assist.
“It talks to his character and how he is with his teammates,” Knights associate GM Rob Simpson said. “I think everything goes into being nominated for that and he had a pretty incredible season.”
