Second Annual Play of the Year Contest Coming Soon

Once again during the MYHockey Rankings 2023-24 season, our Play of the Week feature generated enough submissions and entries for us to name a MHR Play of the Week for pretty much every week of the regular season and even into the postseason. Thanks to everyone who submitted videos and voted to help us select the winners.

To celebrate (and in full transparency, to help us all pass the time during the offseason), we are going to hold our second annual Play of the Year contest starting later this month. We are hoping to fill a 32-play bracket from the videos that were submitted during the course of the season and to allow our followers to vote for their favorite plays throughout the summer until we have a winner.

This contest will be very similar to other past popular contests we have run during hockey’s downtime. Our club logo contest kept hockey fans and families engaged when the sport was shut down during the pandemic, and two summers ago we ran a very popular jersey contest. Last year we named a Play of the Year and Save of the Year for the 2022-23 season.

This season we named approximately 26 weekly MHR Plays of the Week. We also received many spectacular goalie saves that were sent in and nominated. Most, if not all, of the weekly winners and other submissions that received strong consideration during weekly voting will be included in the Play of the Year contest.

Here are the contest requirements:

  • Any play made by an amateur player at any level from mites to juniors that was submitted to us during the 2023-24 season is eligible.
  • Goals, assists, great passes, crazy plays, buzzer-beaters, amazing saves, etc. will all be considered.
  • We will NOT include big hits.

The final bracket will be announced and posted no later than July 24. All voting will take place on weekdays, with the voting for each new round always starting on a Monday or Tuesday. There will be no voting July 3, 4 or 5. A full schedule will be posted when the final bracket is announced.
