2019-2020 SHL Champions

We had a change up in captains this year. We lost Patrik Lundback as the captain of Aware. Aware’s front office requested a trade of Justin St-Denis in the hopes of finally bringing the SHL Cup home. We also had Mike Wilson step down from being a captain. Stepping up, we had Harrison Oztemel becoming captain for the new team PEAK Biolabs, and Jordan Ashton becoming the captain for Hertz with Brad Wilson staying with the Novotel Spitfires.

For the first half of the season, Aware was doing the complete opposite of what they did last season, losing 7 of their first 9 games, but they continued to fight and won 5 more games, but this left them in last place of the season. Could captain, Justin St-Denis, pull off another upset to give himself a threepeat?

Novotel captures first SHL title

Team captains & sponsors gather at center ice for ceremonial puck drop.

Novotel center Mike Freeson tallied five points, including two goals and three assists, as the Spitfires defeated PEAK Biolabs, 5-3, to capture the 2020 SHL Championship.

After a shaky run down the stretch in the regular season, Novotel won three straight games in the playoffs thanks to an offensive barrage from Freeson and lockdown goaltending from Yu Cheng Liao. Late in the first period of the championship with the score knotted 0-0, Novotel winger Jason Bitter dug the puck out of the offensive corner and fed Freeson in the slot. The centerman dished linemate Bill Bredesen, who put the wobbly puck top shelf over a sprawling Gabor Toth in goal for PEAK.

Peak advances to SHL final against Novotel

Peak’s Patrick Forstner advances on Aware D-man Adran Meyers.

In what has been arguably the most entertaining series in the history of the Sport Corner Siam Hockey League, Aware and Peak Biolabs played the decisive third and final game of their entertaining semi-final round series. The winner would earn the right to play Novotel Spitfires for the SHL Championship on Saturday, March 14.

Aware played without a few key players, including Andy Tse, injured in game two of the series. While Peak was still without captain Harrison Oztemel.

Peak got the jump on Aware early, when at the five-minute mark of the first period, Ryan Yaden found himself with the puck camped out in front of Aware goalie Dream, and Yaden made no mistake, getting his first goal of the playoffs. Less than a minute later, Peak doubled their lead when Patrick Forstner took a pass from Yaden and fired the puck passed Dream. Aware was able to buckle down on defense and the game became much more even the rest of the first period, and the period ended 2-0.
