Spokane Chiefs captain Brenden Kichton repeated as the team’s player of the year and earned his third consecutive John “Hitman” Hern Defenseman of the Year honor, the team announced in a ceremony before Friday night’s home game against the Tri-City Americans.

Kichton, 20, played in his 332nd career game Friday, tying Tim Krymusa (1998-2003) for second in franchise history. Kichton is No. 2 in career assists (197) with Spokane and is the team’s all-time leader for assists, goals (67) and points by a defenseman.

Other team awards went to Carter Proft, Players Player; Mitch Holmberg, Ken Rabel Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year; Adam Helewka, Rookie of the Year; Mike Aviani, Humanitarian of the Year; and Jason Fram, Scholastic Player of the Year.
