Jordan Kyrou wins Outstanding Play of the Year honours

Sarnia Sting captain Jordan Kyrou has won the Ontario Hockey League’s most outstanding player of the year honours.

Kyrou, Sarnia’s first ever Red Tilson Trophy recipient, finished third in the OHL in scoring this season with 109 points in 56 games, tying for the league lead with 70 assists.

“The last four years with the Sting have been an unbelievable experience with some amazing people,” the St. Louis Blues prospect said.

“This past season was extra special for me, and I want to thank all of my teammates who stood with me day in and day out.”

Kyrou, 20, was chosen by the Sting in the second round of the 2014 draft and named captain prior to the 2017-18 campaign.

He accumulated 290 points in 250 games during his four-year tenure including 99 goals and a franchise record 191 assists.

This season Kyrou also won gold with Canada at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The Red Tilson Trophy, voted on by writers and broadcasters, is the most prestigious individual award presented by the OHL.
