The North American Hockey League announced today its Most Valuable Player, Forward of the Year, Defenseman of the Year and Goaltender of the Year, along with its All-NAHL Team, for the 2007-08 season.

Reichard, from Celina, Ohio, posted a 33-15-2 record in the regular season to compliment a 2.05 goals-against average and a.935 save percentage. His 33 wins led the entire NAHL, as did his seven shutouts.
“Cody is what junior hockey is all about,” said Ice Dogs coach-GM Rob Proffitt.  “He works harder than anyone I've ever coached.  I wouldn't trade him for any player in any league in North America.”
