Ottawa, Ontario – The Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 is extremely proud to announce that ’98 born Renfrew Timberwolves forward Andrew McIntyre is the 2018-19 CCHL2 Most Valuable Player.
McIntyre, 20, led the league in points (91), goals (43), assists (48) and PPG (2.12). The Cobden, Ontario native set the all-time single season record for hat-tricks with five, and totaled nine multi-goal games and 25 multi-point games. He also collected two six-point games and three five-point games in 43-games this season.
Close friend and longtime teammate Luka Marinic said McIntyre is the guy you want to play with.
“For us as a team, Mac is a reliable and never quits. You know he always comes to the rink ready to win, and wants to. He’s kind of guy you want to play with because you build off of his energy. He’s one of the top players in the league because he found that level of confidence where when he plays, everything just comes naturally to him. He’s found that perfect groove to be able to perform night in and out and that’s what I think separates him from everyone else.”
The fourth year Renfrew forward now ranks second all-time in points (214), assists (121) and third all-time in goals (93). He began his career with Timberwolves as a 17-year-old, coming out of the Upper OV Aces Midget AA program in the 2015-16 season. Since then, he has played in 170 regular season games, which ranks third all-time in CCHL2 history.
He joins Sebastien Plante (2x) and Matthew Labrosse as players to win the MVP award.
Andrew McIntyre and the Renfrew Timberwolves start their best of three Wild Card Series against the Carleton Place Canadians this week. The dates will be announced shortly.
