BUFFALO, NY — The first annual Hasek’s Heroes Western New York High School Hockey Awards ceremony was recently held at the Keybank Center Lexus Club. The ceremony honored the top players, coaches and teams for the 2018-19 season in Western New York High School hockey for boys and girls.

Awards were given out in three divisions including Boys’s Federation, Girl’s Federation, and Boy’s Club. A committee of local hockey representatives was assembled to structure the ceremony similar to that of the NHL Awards Ceremony. The committee was made up of high school and club hockey coaches on a point system.
