The winners in the three categories were:

The 20-year-old winger from Novokuznetsk, Russia had an outstanding season with his KHL club Salavat Yulayev Ufa and with the Russian national junior team, as well as establishing himself on Russia’s senior men’s team at the end of the season. Kaprizov set a new KHL record for rookies with 20 goals and 22 assists in 49 games with Salavat. The swift Russian was the main individual attraction at the 2017 IIHF World Juniors in Canada, where he was named tournament Best Forward and elected to the tournament All Star Team while leading the World Juniors in goals (9) and points (12). Kaprizov was signed by CSKA Moscow during the off-season.

The other nominees in this category were:

Globetrotter Coach of the Year

Roger Rönnberg (Frölunda Gothenburg, SWE)
In his fourth season with the Frölunda Indians, Rönnberg led his team to its third consecutive Champions Hockey League Final and second consecutive win. After losing the 2015 Final to SHL-rival Luleå, Rönnberg’s relentless dedication to international hockey showed the 2016 CHL Final victory vs. Finland’s Kärpät Oulu (2-1). Rönnberg became an early favourite for the Coach of the Year Award when he once again led the Gothenburg club to yet another European crown, this time by defeating Sparta Prague (CZE) 4-3, in dramatic overtime. Rönnberg has earned much praise for his way of developing young players.

The other nominees in this category were:

Kari Jalonen
(SC Bern, SUI) – Has led Bern to first back-to-back titles in NLA in 16 years

After winning the Champions Hockey League in February 2016, Frölunda took its first Swedish Hockey League title under coach Rönnberg in April 2016 and in February 2017 repeated the European success with the second consecutive CHL title. One has to go back to the late '80s and the famous CSKA Moscow to find a club with similar European impact. During the past season, Frölunda put 30 players on various European national teams, 23 on junior national teams (U16-U20) and 10 on senior national teams.
