Most Valuable Player
On bol jednoducho elektrizujúci! He was simply electrifying. That was one of many phrases you could have used to describe every time Sam Solensky skated at 1st Summit Arena. The native of Michalovce, Slovakia became a popular player on and off the ice.
Sammy returned to the Tomahawks this season after a brief stint with the Youngstown Phantoms of the United States Hockey League. His impact on the Tomahawks was indelible throughout the season whether it was even-strength or on the man-advantage. Teams knew that Solensky was a dangerous player when he stepped onto the ice.
SAM BY THE NUMBERS
Averaging almost a point per game, Solensky was lethal whenever it was go time. In 48 games, he tallied 46 points (18 goals, 28 assists). Six of those 18 markers came on the man advantage.
TALLYING UP THE AWARDS
Solensky earned recognition for his offensive prowess in the form of winning the offensive player of the year award. Additionally, he was voted on by the fans as the team's Most Valuable Player.
The NAHL bestowed a huge honor on Solensky by having him represent the East Division and the Tomahawks at the 2018 Top Prospects Tournament in Plymouth, Mich.
