Lightning strike for awards

By Nick Kuhl on April 13, 2019.

The Lethbridge Lightning capped off a successful second year in the 
Ranchland Hockey League with their annual awards banquet Friday at the 
Lethbridge Legion.
Following a season that saw the Lightning go 16-4-0-0 in the regular 
season, advance to the league final and eventually win a provincial 
bronze medal, it only made sense to make this year’s MVP honour a 
shared one and to give it to both goaltenders as Cole Schafer and 
goaltender Alex Sirard got the nod.
Sirard went 8-1-0-0 this season with a 2.85 goals-against average and 
a .733 save percentage. Schafer was 6-3-0-0 with a 4.08 goals-against 
average, a .728 save percentage and one shutout.
In other Lightning awards Friday, Cole Matson won the Most 
Sportsmanlike award and Shay Wirll earned the Team Leadership honour.
Laramie Kostelansky was recognized as the Lightning’s Rookie of the 
Year, Nicholas Mottl was the Most Improved, Devery Edmonds won the Top 
Defenceman award and Ashton Zintel was selected as the Most Community 
Minded Player.
