The Best Defenseman Trophy is sponsored by Sport.
We had some incredible defenseman during the 2016-2017 season of the SHL, so it was really hard choosing three (3) defenseman and then choosing the best defenseman from those three (3).
The third nominee and winner was Patrik Lundback from the Aware! Not only did Patrik win the Best Defenseman, he also helped coach the Thai National Hockey Team to a 2017 Asian Winter Games gold medal!
