The Okotoks Bisons wrapped up their season this past Friday, April 5th, with their Annual Awards ceremony at Crystal Ridge Golf Course.

Forward, Dallas Otto cleaned up by walking away with three awards, Playoff MVP, a shared Leadership Award, and the Hardest Working Bison.

Otto says his team is a great one to lead.

"It means a lot, but I couldn't do it without the whole team by my side and they're a great group of guys. I like to be a leader and they're a great group of guys to lead I guess." 

Otto adds he may join the Canadian Armed Forces as part of his future plans.

Netminder, Devin Reagan was awarded MVP, and says he felt he had a good year, but the season ended too abruptly.

"We had a great start and then it kind of fell off and then we got back on the wagon. Yeah, it just didn't work out in playoffs."
