Captain Ondrej Pavel has been awarded this season’s Tom Clifford Leadership and Dedication Award.
Finishing out the season with 20 points (11g, 9a) in 40 games, the forward combined his strong work ethic and communication skills to lead the 2019-20 squad.
“Ondrej led by example, as well as communicated with his teammates at a high level. He was an elite shut-down forward - on top of being a clutch performer,” said Head Coach Pierre-Paul Lamoureux. “His level raised at critical times and his honesty and leadership qualities will serve him well.”
Force alumni who have received the leadership award in the past are AJ Drobot, Mark Senden, Blake Lizotte, and Austin Pooley.
