Player of the Year

St. Anthonys, F, Sr.
Not even time could slow down Chris Wallace this season.
The St. Anthonys forward beat the clock in the state CHSAA championship game, scoring the winning goal with one second left that gave the Friars their first state title.
Wallace led St. Anthonys to a 21-0 record with a team-high 30 goals. He was second on the team with 45 points and was at his best in the postseason.
The winner in the state championship game completed a hat trick that night, and his seven goals in a two-game sweep of St. Joseph Sea in the CHSHL championship made up 63-percent of the teams offense in the series.Ive been with this program since 1984 and I think played better this season than anyone that Ive seen before, coach Jeff Stelmok said.Wallace plays for the New York Bobcats Junior-A hockey team, a top junior team on Long Island, and hopes to move on to a higher profile junior league next season before trying to play college hockey.
Its been incredible, Wallace said of his time at St. Anthonys. Its been a pleasure to play for all the coaches and its been a lot of fun.
