Jayson Shaugaby won the prestigious Minnesota Mr. Hockey Award on Sunday, a day after his Warroad Warriors were defeated in the Class A State Championship. The UMD commit totaled 33 goals and 63 assists for 96 points in 31 games for the Warriors this season and accumulated 304 points on 114 goals and 190 assists over the course of his four-year career. Shaugabay leaves Warroad as an instant legend and becomes only the second Warroad Warrior to win Mr. Hockey (Larry Olimb, 1988).
Shaugabay’s play is a joy to watch as he’s a wizard at using speed manipulation and playmaking innovation to keep defenders guessing and fans wondering what he has in store next. Shaugabay is eligible for the 2023 NHL Draft in June. NHL Central Scouting has him ranked at 64th among North American skaters.
The Mr. Hockey Award is selected by a panel of National Hockey League scouts, selected media members from around the state, Junior hockey scouts and coaches.
