Sedevie, Miller, Schwartz Named Division’s Best

Bismarck, ND – Bobcats goaltender Andrew Miller, forward Austin Schwartz and head coach Layne Sedevie have all earned Central Division honors, the NAHL announced Wednesday.

Miller was named to the All-Central Division Team as the lone Bobcat representative, while also earning Central Division Goaltender of the Year. He was named to the NAHL All-Rookie First Team on Tuesday.

“I am very proud to show off the Bobcat logo and represent my team,” Miller said. “It’s an honor to do that for a great organization. You can’t do it with just one person, so you have to give credit to the boys and coaches that had my back all season.”

Schwartz was honored as the Central Division Community Service Award winner. He was a major part of the Bobcats’ community outreach this season, which included trips on the Be Kind, Bullying Hurts campaign. Schwartz finished with 22 points in 51 games this season.

“It’s an honor to even be recognized as a player in this league and a big accomplishment for everyone involved,” Schwartz said. “From ownership to the coaching staff, everyone here pushes being involved in the community and being a good role model.”

Sedevie was named the Central Division Coach of the Year after guiding the Bobcats to a 32-12-5-3 record. The Bobcats were poised to make a run for first in the Central as well as a shot at the Robertson Cup behind Sedevie before the season was cancelled.

With Sedevie at the helm, the Bobcats finished in the top 10 in the NAHL in both goals per game and goals against per game. Bismarck also finished third in the NAHL in penalty minutes taken per game, finishing as the most disciplined team in the Central Division.
