That's a wrap for S67 folks! Congratulations to the Wolves for bringing the Continental Cup to Vancouver for the first time. :que: End of season results will be coming before the end of the week. And before anyone has a meltdown over this week's question 2, keep in mind uncapped TPE is handed out for every 2 correct answers, not every 1. :)

 

Anyway, this week's answers:

 

1. Who was the first defenceman to lead the league in assists? (Credit and 1 uncapped TPE to @gorlab)

It's a trophy which a defenceman can realistically aim for, as shown by the fact all 4 winners from S62 to S66 were blue-liners. However, it wasn't until S5 that a defenceman first won the Beketov (or the Mikita as it was then known, given Beketov wasn't drafted yet and all). That was the great Joey Kendrick, putting up an obscene 112 assists, still among the second highest mark of all-time. Kendrick's Hall of Fame article would have informed you that he was a defenceman, while two other options, Ace Lightning (a forward) and Tomas Jenskovic (and another defenceman) won the trophy after Kendrick. Jonathan McKelvie, who may or may not be @Cornholio, did lead the league in assists before in Kendrick (in S2) and is not a Hall of Famer, so the easiest way to know if he was a defenceman would have been to check if he was on the defencemen all-time stats spreadsheet (he isn't).

 

2. When was the first time a goalie was named VHL MVP (whether by player or GM/BOG/Committee vote)?

Ah, a nice end of season trick question! As the top of the Brett Slobodzian Trophy page says, for the first 20 seasons it was another MVP trophy, rather than MOP which it is now. That means that although Aidan Shaw, in S21, was the first goalie to win the Scotty Campbell Trophy (although Daisuke Kanou won the Slobo that season), he was beaten to the title of MVP by Jonas Markstrom in S16. Markstrom didn't win the Campbell that season, but did win the Tretiak (which became the Shaw) which would have probably been the easiest way to find out if he was a goalie.

Personally I just checked the S1 draft thread, it lists positions and I knew if he had most assists in S2 it was likely he was drafted in season 1.
