Most Valuable Player Award (PIHA)


Most Valuable Player Award (PIHA)

The PIHA Most Valuable Player Award is awarded annually to the Most Valuable Player in the Professional Inline Hockey Association.

History

The PIHA Most Valuable Player Award was first awarded at the conclusion of the 2001-02 PIHA season. The winner of the first PIHA MVP Award was Brian Yingling of the York Typhoon. None of the six recipients of the award have won it more than once.

Brian Yingling (2002) and older brother Steve Yingling (2003) both of the York Typhoon are the only set of brothers to both win the award. The York Typhoon are also the only team to have more than one winner.

Ryan Clemens (2006) of the Littleton Fire and Joe D'Aloisio (2007) of the Philadelphia Growl are the only two goaltenders in PIHA history to have won the award. They are the last two winners.

The first three winners of the award are all now on different teams; Brian Yingling and Steve Yingling who were on the York Typhoon, are now on the Colorado Springs Thunder and the Harrisburg Lunatics respectively; and Jim Vivona won the award with the New Jersey Minutemen is now a member of the Philadelphia Growl.

Brian Yingling and Jim Vivona are the only two players to win the award along with the PIHA Leading Scorer Award in the same season. Brian Yingling and Joe D'Aloisio are the only players to win the MVP award along with a Playoffs MVP Award with Yingling winning the Playoffs MVP in 2004 and D'Aloisio winning in 2006.
