Fort Wayne’s Graber named Warrior Hockey / ECHL Most Valuable Player

The ECHL on Friday announced that Will Graber of the Fort Wayne Komets has been selected as the Warrior Hockey ECHL Most Valuable Player for 2021-22.

The Warrior Hockey Most Valuable Player award is presented annually to the selected player to be the most valuable to his team as determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and media members.

TJ Hensick of Toledo finished second, followed by Newfoundland’s Zach O’Brien, Kris Bennett of Iowa and Utah’s Charle-Edouard D’Astous.

Named to the All-ECHL First Team last week, Graber became the first player in ECHL history to lead the league in points (83) and plus-minus (+37) in the same season. He also led the ECHL with 57 assists while recording at least one point in 35 of his 59 games.
