Arjun Atwal Named 2020 AJHL MVP

SHERWOOD PARK, AB: The Sherwood Park Crusaders are proud to announce that Arjun Atwal (1999) has been named the AJHL’s Most Valuable Player for the 2019/2020 season.

Atwal joins Peter Quenneville (2011/2012), Cody Kunyk (2009/2010), Mike Palichuk (1988/1989), and Ken Weiss (1986/1987) as Crusaders recognized as AJHL MVP.

The 2019/2020 season has been a special one for the Crusaders captain. Now in his fifth season with the Crusaders, Atwal currently leads the AJHL in both assists (71) and overall points (106) in 53 games. Earlier this year, Atwal solidified his position as the 2nd-highest scoring Crusaders of all-time with 232 points in his 162 games with the franchise. 

Not only has Atwal found considerable individual success this season, but led the Crusaders to the team’s best statistical season in the club’s 41-year history in Sherwood Park. Earlier this month, the club clinched the North Division for the second straight year, and recently earned a franchise record for total points in a single season.

The entire Crusaders organization would like to congratulate Arjun and the entire Atwal family on his accomplishment.
