Bennett Wahl was drafted by Yukon in the S36 VHLM Dispersal Draft with the 16th pick. Not much was expected of him at the time, as Munk was inactive and hadn’t posted since the website transfer. However, after being drafted Wahl surprisingly made his way back to the league, and even showed some signs of activity when he actually made a point task In his first season, Wahl’s regular season stats were nothing special, even though he was consistently earning some tpe each week. After a whole season of pestering Munk, I finally convinced him to do his first update about an hour before the playoff update, hence why his playoff stats were kind of decent. Wahl’s 40 tpe update turned out to be huge for the Rush, as we made it to the Founder’s Cup and actually beat almighty Bratislava in 2 games in the finals.


In Season 37, Wahl began to embody what it meant to be a member of the Yukon Rush. He became really active in the locker room, causing a lot of locker room shenanigans. He also was the ultimate team player that season, as he was one of three centers on the team, so he volunteered to play wing that season. Wahl ramped up his activity in Season 37 as well, as I believe he earned around 100 tpe that season, hence why he posted respectable number as a playmaking winger. Under Wahl’s leadership as captain, Yukon earned the league’s best regular season record and was a favorite to win the Founder’s Cup. Yukon continued dominating in the playoffs with Wahl’s help, as Wahl was a PPG player against some solid teams. With Wahl’s help, Yukon defeated Bern in the finals 4-2 to win the Founder’s Cup. Wahl’s most significant game in the Founder’s Cup was Yukon’s second victory, when Wahl netted three assists.


In Season 38, Wahl assumed an ever bigger role on the Rush, as his tpe earnings continued. Wahl was Yukon’s first line center that season, and lived up to his role as he was the team’s second leading point scorer (113 points), along with having one of the top faceoff percentages in the league. Wahl’s locker room shenanigans continued in S38, as he created some excellent XM Radios, along with having a good time in the locker room. Yukon once again had the best regular season record with Wahl’s assistance, and was once again favorites to win the cup. During the S38 playoffs, Wahl was once again a great team player as he allowed his teammates to score instead of him. With Wahl’s help, Yukon once again won the Founder’s Cup, with Wahl’s most significant game coming in Yukon’s second win against Turku when he scored the first goal on the way to a 4-1 rout.


Overall, Wahl provided Yukon with 3 seasons of support both on the ice, activity wise, and in the locker room. Because of this, I would like to congratulate Wahl on being (I think) the first member of the Yukon Rush Hall of Fame!
