Ryobi Hardest Working Player

Press Release

Toronto, ON - The Ontario Hockey League is pleased to announce Ryobi as the new title sponsor of the Hardest Working Player of the Game program recognizing a player each game who best demonstrates dependability, quality of play and overall commitment. This partnership between Ryobi and the OHL aligns their shared commitment to hard work both on and off the ice. Both partners are dedicated to recognizing those players who honour that commitment.

“Ryobi is thrilled to partner with the Ontario Hockey League to recognized star players who demonstrate the utmost level of dependability and outstanding skill,” said Mitch Dennehy, VP of Sales & Marketing with Ryobi Canada. “We stand behind our community and look to partner with first-class organizations. Sports play an integral role in shaping the lives of our younger generations and we’re proud to recognize the outstanding efforts of these players.”

“The OHL is excited to welcome Ryobi as a new league partner this season and title sponsor of the Ryobi Hardest Working Player of the Game Award,” commented OHL Commissioner David Branch.  “In order to play in the OHL, players must possess a strong work ethic making it fitting to have an award that recognizes the efforts of our hardworking student athletes.”

Throughout the season, the OHL will keep a tally of the players recognized as the Ryobi Hardest Working Player of the Game. This program will be activated across 16 teams in the Ontario Hockey League.  At the end of the season a player from the OHL will be crowned the ‘Ryobi Hardest Working Player of the Year’ and will win a $2000 scholarship and a Ryobi 6pc combination kit courtesy of Ryobi Power Tools.
