This year’s best defense was a tough decision. Our first candidate this year were Patrik Lundback of Aware, who had an incredible season this year with leading his team to a new SHL record of an eleven game win streak. Our second candidate was new comer, Juhani Ijas of Expedia. Ijas had a great season this year, and he was a force to be reckoned with when he was on the point. Our third candidate was the captain of the Sukhumvit Spitfires, Brad Wilson, who not only had a great year, but in one game, he played goaltender when his netminder was late coming to the game.
The winner this year went to Patrick Lundback for his strength on defense all season, accruing 18 points (6 goals and 12 assists) in 16 games with five minutes in penalties.
