The rookie for the Hitmen climbed atop a mountain of 31 other monikers to earn the crown in our first-ever competition. Let's take a moment to learn about the player behind the award-winning name.
After weeks of voting, we have reached the conclusion of our tournament to determine the best name in the Western League. And Calgary's Carsen Twarynski is your victor.
An undersized player who can suit up as either a left winger or a defenseman, Twarynski is up for the draft next season as a late 1997 birthday. He's willing to stick up for himself on the ice and in our tournament, he fended off a tough competitor in Red Deer's Kayle Doetzel to clinch the crown. The Calgary local has nine points in his first 21 games for the Hitmen and according to you, the voters, he has a really cool name.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
