Toledo's Hawkins named 2023-24 Warrior Hockey ECHL Most Valuable Player

 SHREWSBURY, N.J. – The ECHL on Friday announced that Brandon Hawkins of the Toledo Walleye has been selected as the Warrior Hockey ECHL Most Valuable Player for 2023-24.

The Warrior Hockey Most Valuable Player award is presented annually to the player selected to be the most valuable to his team as determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and media members. 
Patrick Curry of Kansas City finished second, followed by Wheeling’s Taylor Gauthier, Erik Bradford of Kalamazoo and Maine’s Alex Kile. 
Named to the All-ECHL First Team for the second consecutive season, Hawkins led the ECHL during the 2023-24 season with 40 goals, 93 points, 34 power-play points and 346 shots on goal, while he was tied for the league lead with 15 power-play goals, was tied for sixth with 54 assists and tied for 10th with six game-winning goals.
Hawkins, who represented the Walleye at the 2024 Warrior Hockey/ECHL All-Star Classic, recorded at least one point in 54 of his 70 games this season. He had a pair of 14-game point streaks during the season (Dec. 8-Jan. 10 and Feb. 4-Mar. 10), and went more than two games without picking up at least a point on only two occasions during the season.
