Thanks to our great friends at National Coney Island for sponsoring the 2019 Michigan High School Hockey Player of the Year Contest!
Voting for the 2019 Michigan High School Hockey Player of the Year contest - sponsored by National Coney Island – is now over!
Congratulations to all of this year's contestants on their terrific seasons, and to our FINAL FOUR candidates below!!
Tune in to State Champs! High Sports Show - Michigan this Sunday at 9 am on Fox Sports for the announcement of the Michigan HS Hockey Player of the Year winner, along with our good freinds at National Coney Island!
Unlike other state-wide awards, this is the only one that allows the Michigan fans to weigh in! However, winning the popular vote does not make you the contest winner - the winner of the online vote is automatically entered into the Final 4, and their chances of winning is increased by 20%.
The criteria that will be used to select the 2018 HS Hockey Player of the Year will be:
30% - Performance Throughout Season
20% - Level of Competition
20% - Online Vote
15% - Big Game Performance
10% - Team Success
5% - Highly Recruited Athlete
Throughout the season, our media analysts will be monitoring performance, updating player statistics and adding new candidates into the contest as their actual play and performance merits, with a goal of keeping the ten best hockey players on the board. Toward the end of the contest, we will close online voting and select our Final 4 candidates. The final award selection and presentation will take place in March with our good friends at National Coney Island!!
And finally, while you are totally enjoying the Winter Sports Season - don't forget to grab a few friends and head to one of National Coney Island's 20 great restaurants across SE Michigan!
