Idaho's White receives ECHL Sportsmanship Award

A.J. White of the Idaho Steelheads is the recipient of the ECHL Sportsmanship Award for 2023-24 as determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and media members. 
 
The award is presented annually to the player who is judged to have exhibited the best sportsmanship combined with a high standard of playing ability. 
 
The ECHL will announce the recipient of the John A. Daley Memorial Trophy as Rookie of the Year on Monday.
 
Chris Grando of Jacksonville finished second, followed by Kansas City’s Nolan Walker, Zach O’Brien of Newfoundland and Toledo’s Brandon Hawkins.
 
White, who finished second in the voting for the award last season and fifth in 2021-22, has recorded 63 points (26g-37a) in 69 games this season while being assessed just eight penalty minutes. His 26 goals this season are a new career-high, while he is just six points shy of his career best of 69, which he set in 2021-22. White is tied for third in the league with 12 power-play goals.
