The NAPE Hockey League is announcing the establishment of the Josh Nolan Memorial Playoffs Point Leader Award, starting for the 2022-2023 season playoffs. This award will be given annually to the player that scored the most points throughout the playoffs for the season, total goals and assists.
The award is named in memory of Josh Nolan, a member of the NAPE hockey league in 2021-2022 season who scored the most points in the playoffs that year. In his approach to the game Josh demonstrated passion, enthusiasm and a competitive spirit, stepping up his play when the team needed him. Tragically Josh passed away August 2022, but he leaves behind a legacy of enthusiasm, sportsmanship and skill. Josh loved the game, and his former teammates and the NAPE league are proud to celebrate his memory and legacy each year through this award.
The winner will be recognized at the NAPE end of season awards ceremony and their name will be added to the Josh Nolan Memorial Trophy.
