Sarnia Sting defenceman Jakob Chychrun is one of the finalists for the OHL’s Red Tilson Trophy, which recognizes the most outstanding player of the year.

The Ontario Hockey League announced the finalists for the league’s major awards for the 2014-15 regular season on Wednesday.

All finalists for the Red Tilson Trophy were nominated by the member teams of the OHL as their most outstanding player for the 2014-15 regular season. The Red Tilson Trophy is voted on by the sports writers and broadcasters in the OHL.

Chychrun has also been nominated for the Emms Family Award as rookie of the year, and the Max Kaminsky Trophy for defenceman of the year.
