Former Jr. Coyote Burgess selected NAHL MVP
Phoenix Jr. Coyotes grad and Phoenix native Todd Burgess had one of the better individual seasons in recent NAHL history and was named the league’s MVP and Forward of the Year for the 2015-16 season.
Burgess, who is committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, recorded 95 points (38 goals, 57 assists) for the Fairbanks Ice Dogs, which was the most in a season by an NAHL player since Pat Maroon (Edmonton Oilers) had 95 points during the 2006-07 season for the St. Louis Bandits.
Also selected to the 2016 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for the NAHL Selects Team (pictured), where he had three points in two games, Burgess is currently one of 11 players with NAHL ties ranked in the final NHL Central Scouting rankings for the 2016 NHL Draft.
In his three-year NAHL career, Burgess recorded 145 points in 147 regular-season games.
