Four Castlegar Rebels have been honoured with Neil Murdoch division awards after a record-setting season that saw the club exceed past bests in wins and points.

Sniper Ryan Aynsley was named the division’s top scorer and Most Valuable Player.

The 20-year-old from Kelowna led the Rebels with 71 points and finished 8th in the league in scoring despite playing in only 38 of Castlegar’s 50 games.

Montrose’s Alex Ross was named the Goaltender of the Year, posting a sparkling 2.04 goals against average and picking up three shutouts as well.

Veteran blueliner Darren Tarasoff picked up the Top Defenceman award.

Tarasoff adopted a leadership role this season, spending many a minute alongside rookie partner Aaron Brewer.

Rebels head coach Steve Junker was tabbed as Coach of the Year.

The 38-year-old, who made his head coaching debut this season, led the Rebels to a first-place 42-8 record in the regular season.

The only two awards not won by Rebels went to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

Sixteen-year-old phenom Dallas Calvin was named the Rookie of the Year, while teammate Ryon Sookro won the Most Sportsmanlike award.

Two Castlegar products also won Eddie Mountain division awards this past weekend.

Scott Morisseau was named top scorer and MVP, while former Rebel Andrew Walton picked up the Top Goaltender award.
