Spirit earn second consecutive West Division banner

 

The Saginaw Spirit have locked up the Bumbacco Trophy once again with their second straight West Division banner.

The Spirit concluded their 2019-20 campaign on a seven-game winning streak, with their latest triumph coming in a 4-3 edging of the Erie Otters on March 8th. With the win, the Spirit concluded their regular season with a 41-16-3-2 record, good for 87 points.

Top NHL Draft prospect Cole Perfetti set a new Spirit single season record, amassing 111 points (37-74–111) over 61 games, finishing second in OHL scoring while Minnesota Wild prospect and captain Damien Giroux (44-31–75) led the club with 44 goals. Saginaw features more offensive power in New York Islanders prospect Cole Coskey (34-46—80) who ended his regular season career as the franchise’s career games played leader. Carolina Hurricanes first rounder Ryan Suzuki was a mid-season addition from the Barrie Colts. He posted 35 points (13-22–35) over 23 games in a Spirit uniform. Chris Lazary’s club also had the benefit of New York Islanders prospect Bode Wilde (4-7–11) returning to the lineup in mid-February.

The Spirit claims the distinction named after former Soo Greyhounds general manager Angelo Bumbacco for the third time in the club’s 18-year history following past titles in 2011 and 2019.
