PICTOU, N.S. - Windsor’s Michael Dill was crowned Rookie of the Year in his initial season (15-16) in the Maritime Junior A Hockey League, but that clearly wasn’t enough.

Showing his explosive talent as a hockey player, he captured the Maritime League’s scoring championship in 2016-2017.
 
Dill was red hot in the season’s closing four weeks, as he registered 25 points finishing the season with 90 points, scoring 32 goals and collecting 58 assists and edging out his Crushers teammate Alexis Roy by one point.

Dill, 19 years of age, appeared in all 50 games during the course of the regular season as well as making an appearance for Team MHL South at the 2016 Eastern Canada Cup All-Star Challenge in Cornwall, Ontario in November, 2016.

Dill helped propel the Pictou County Weeks Crushers to the top of the Maritime Hockey League overall and the top offensive team in the league.  

The Crushers defeated the Amherst Ramblers in five of the six regular season games played between the clubs during the 16-17 regular season, but in the opening the rounds of the playoffs, the Ramblers are in the lead at 2-1 in their Best of 7 Series.

The Crushers with a goal by Dill nosed out the Ramblers 5-4 in overtime in Pictou March 16 before falling 4-1 in Amherst March 18. The Ramblers were successful again on March 20, defeating the Crushers 4-3.

The teams play Game 4 in their series on March 22.  

The Maritime Junior A Hockey League Champions will advance to the Fred Page Cup in Terrebonne, Quebec and a win in this tournament would put them in the Royal Bank Cup in Cornwall, Ontario later in May for the Canadian Junior A Hockey Championship.
