Dauphin's Riley Hammond was the statistical leader for the Dauphin Clippers during the regular season, and he was rewarded for his contributions as he was named to the Second All-Star Team in the Westman High School Hockey League.
"It means a lot to me," said Hammond. "I've worked really hard, so it feels great. But, I wouldn't have made it there without the help of my teammates."
In 23 regular season games, Hammond produced 48 points (22 goals) which were second behind Drayson Kruk who had 27 goals, but Hammond's 48 points were a team-high.
Hammond and the Clippers are now getting set for their second-round playoff matchup against the Killarney Raiders.
"The award definitely gives me confidence moving forward," said Hammond. "We're focusing on the Raiders, and hopefully we can get it done."
The Dauphin native and the rest of the Clippers played Killarney once in the regular season and won, 6-5.
"We just have to play our game, and play hard," said Hammond. "If we play for a full 60 minutes, we should be able to pull it out and move on."
In 23 games with the Clippers last year, Hammond had 22 points (12 goals).
