The Alberta Junior Hockey League today announced the 2015-2016 AJHL All-League and All-Rookie teams. The selections for each team were determined through voting by the AJHL General Managers and Coaches.
Pontiac’s teammates Bobby McMann and Brinson Pasichnuk were unanimous selections to the North Division All-League Team. Five of the six players selected to the North Division All-League team were finalists for the 2015-2106 League Awards (Leclerc, Lloyd, Pasichnuk, McMann, and Busch). Five of six have also committed to a NCAA College / University (Lloyd, Pasichnuk, McMann, Busch, and Kruper).
Three members of the North Division team captured a Gold medal at the 2015 World Junior A Challenge with Team Canada West (Pasichnuk, McMann and Busch). The Pontiacs and Bobcats both have dual representation on the North Division’s All-League roster with the remaining two spots filled by the Crusaders and Saints.
