With the conclusion of the 2019-20 season, the Colorado Mammoth is pleased to present the recipients of this year’s team awards. An annual occurrence, Mammoth players and staff vote for individual players who best exemplified the leadership and production qualities associated with each award and former Colorado Mammoth player in which the awards were named after. Mammoth players and staff have taken place in the tradition since the 2015 season.
The awards, named after former Mammoth greats, represent various aspects of the game, both on and off the floor. Team MVP, Best Offenseman, Best Defenseman, Teammate of the Year and Most Inspirational round out the traditional five awards. The annual regular season celebration concludes with the Fan Choice Award, a unique opportunity which encourages the Mammoth faithful to vote for their favorite player of the season.

Signed as a free agent prior to the 2019-20 season, Tyler Carlson was a big addition on the turf and in the locker room alike and ensured his character and professionalism were transparent each week throughout the season. From having the loudest voice on the bench to taking extra shots at practice, Carlson was an ideal teammate in his first season with Colorado. The veteran added years of experience to the Mammoth roster coupled with championship pedigree as the goaltender has secured three championships (2015, 2016, 2018) during his time with the Edmonton/Saskatchewan Rush.
Carlson’s value shined brightest on March 8, as he entered the game early in the first quarter to relieve starter Dillon Ward. In over 50 minutes of time in net, the netminder stopped 37 of 40 shots and helped the Mammoth secure a 10-8 victory in its final game of the regular season. To cap off his eventful night, Carlson gave the Loud House fans a postgame interview to remember – “WOOOOO!!!”
Carlson finished the 2019-20 regular season with just under 60 minutes played, earned the victory on March 8 and boasted an astonishing 5.06 goals allowed average paired with a save percentage of 0.894.
