Encarnacion back where he belongs, top of the PIMs board


Recommended Posts

It’s been a long season for Edwin Encarnacion. After a disappointing sophomore year in the VHL which saw him only just scrape into one top ten leaderboard (Shots Blocked), it looked very much like Encarnacion’s poor form had continued on into his third VHL season. However, after the trading of Cologne’s star defenseman Malcolm Spud and franchise center Kameron Taylor to the Riga Reign, Encarnacion was given the captain spot on the Express, which has seemingly reinvigorated the Dominican to a point where he looks to perhaps become a true force in his fourth VHL season. At the point of the Express-Riga trade, Encarnacion was sitting third in Penalty Minutes but was outside the top ten in both hits and shots blocked. However, since that trade, Encarnacion has gone on a tear and with just two games remaining, Edwin has secured his place in both the Hits (5th) and Shots Blocked (6th) top tens.


The important thing though for Encarnacion though heading into this season was that he re-established his place as “The King of PIMs”. After a season-long battle with Connor Low and Phil Villeneuve, it looks like Encarnacion may just be about to sneak in a victory as, with two games to go, he leads Villeneuve by 2 minutes and Low, who has a game in hand, by 4 minutes.


Fuck the Bears/Americans race, this is the one to keep an eye on!
