The CCHL announced its annual award winners and all-stars Monday with a handful of Braves seeing their names on the list.
First-year Brockville bench boss Jesse Winchester was named the league’s coach of the year. The 34-year-old was handed a young team that had a lot of junior hockey rookies on the roster and he’s guided them to a top seed as his team secured a third-place spot Monday after beating the Pembroke Lumber Kings 4-2 at home.
Veteran defenceman Andrew Jarvis was one of six players to be selected to the CCHL All-Graduate Team. The fifth-year defenceman has collected 37 points with a career-high 12 goals this year. He will be suiting up for the Carleton Ravens university team next year.
Braves blue-liner Simon Mack was picked for the All-Rookie team. The 16-year-old has grown tremendously all year and ranks second in assists by rookie defenceman with 18 helpers. Mack has already committed to attend Penn State University in 2020-21.
Braves defenceman Jonathan Hill was named a first-team all-star. The alternate captain leads all CCHL defencemen with 19 goals and is tied for first for points by a blue-liner with 53. Hill is attending Niagara University next year.
Both Jarvis and Brockville goaltender Justin Evenson were named to the second-team all-star roster. Evenson has the third-best save percentage at .930 and is ranked second for the most wins with 27.
