The NIHL are pleased to announce that the Player of the Month awards will return for this season, with one player being named from each of the five divisions.

A panel of hockey media has been assembled for each of the divisions and they will nominate their best players each month, culminating in Player of the Year awards being presented at the respective season-ending Playoff Weekends.

A spokesman for the NIHL said: “We are grateful to the writers and broadcasters who have agreed to give their opinions each month and allow us to recognise the best players in each division.

“Hundreds of players leave everything on the ice each weekend for the entertainment of thousands, it is only right that the best of the best get recognised.

“The awards will also stimulate discussion among supporters both at the rinks and on social media, voicing their opinions on the winners each month whether the panel got it right or wrong in their eyes.”

The first monthly winners will be announced this weekend.
