Johnson receives June M. Kelly Playoffs MVP Award

Cam Johnson of the Florida Everblades earned the June M. Kelly Playoffs Most Valuable Player Award as the Most Valuable Player of the 2023 Kelly Cup Playoffs. Johnson becomes the first player in ECHL history to win the postseason MVP award in consecutive seasons and he joins Nick Vitucci and Dave Gagnon as the only players to win the award twice over their career.

Johnson played every minute during Florida's playoff run, posting a 16-6 record with four shutouts, a 2.10 goals-against average and a save percentage of .922. His four shutouts are tied for the second most in a single postseason in ECHL history, while his eight career playoff shutouts are tied for the most in ECHL postseason history.

The Playoffs Most Valuable Player Trophy was renamed in 2019 in honor of June M. Kelly, the wife of ECHL Commissioner Emeritus Patrick J. Kelly, whom the Kelly Cup is named after. Mrs. Kelly was an integral part of the ECHL behind the scenes during her husband’s tenure as Commissioner from the League’s inaugural season in 1988-89 through his retirement following the 1995-96 season.
