JUNIOR C PLAYER OF THE YEAR – Ryley Cribbin, Mount Forest Patriots
Cribbin had an incredible final season in the Provincial Junior Hockey League. He skated in his fourth and final season with the PJHL Pollock Division’s Mount Forest Patriots in 2019-20 and he had his best statistical season in his junior hockey career. His 86 points (39G/47A) led the Patriots in scoring this season. Cribbin’s tallies for goals (39) and assists (47) were also tops among all Mount Forest players. His point total this season was a 32 point increase on his previous PJHL career-high 54 points, which he set with the Patriots in the 2017-18 season.
Eighty-six points had Cribbin just one point shy of the PJHL scoring lead, as he finished second in league scoring to Napanee’s Evan Foley (87 points). In addition to placing second in league scoring, Cribbin also finished second in goals scored with 39, which was also one shy of the league leading 40 goals scored by Norwich’s Jake Luke. At season’s end, Cribbin was named MVP of the Pollock Division.
2019-20 was the 21-year-old forward’s sixth season in the OHA. Cribbin first made the jump to the OHA as an AP with the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League’s (GOJHL) Elmira Sugar Kings. His first stint with Elmira was in the 2014-15 season where he played just one game. He joined the Sugar Kings for a full season in 2015-16 and played 48 games and posted three goals and 15 points as a 16-year-old.
