The Amherst Ramblers honoured their top players during the annual awards ceremony on Wednesday.

AMHERST – Call him Mr. Dependability.

Richard Tingley has been a fixture in goal for the Amherst CIBC Wood Gundy Ramblers for four seasons and excelled after assuming the starter’s job in the midst of a playoff run two seasons ago.

Tingley’s commitment to improving his own game and backstopping the team to another solid regular season finish has resulted him being presented with the Hurley Memorial Trophy Wednesday as the team’s most valuable player for the 2013-14 season.

“It’s a great feeling. When you consider some of the guys who’ve come before me in winning this award there really aren’t any words to describe it,” said Tingley, who had a 22-14-4 record with the Ramblers in his final season with the club.

The 20-year-old Williamswood native and Saint John Seadogs draft choice finished near the top in several league categories including save percentage and shutouts, as well as games played and goals against average.

Tingley has also seen his game improve from several years ago when questions were being asked about whether he could be the Number 1 goalie to the point where he almost single-handedly won games during the regular season when the club lost several key players to injury.

“I found my game improved a lot in the time I was here, but how could it not with the guys who have played in front of me over the last few years,” Tingley said. “I’ve had some amazing teammates.”

Tingley also received the Henry Treadwell Memorial Award as Fan’s Choice as well as the Captain’s Choice - Hawkes’ Blueberries Award, while fellow four-year veteran Brett Shute was presented the Shermie White Memorial Trophy as the player best combining clean play with value to the club.

Shute scored 25 goals and added 30 assists for 55 points in 51 games for the Ramblers, emerging as an offensive threat after being regarded as one of the league’s top defensive forwards last season.

The Moe Bent Trophy as the most improved player went to Serge Boisvert, who joined the club this season after splitting last year between the Ramblers and Cumberland County Blues of the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League.

Boisvert had 13 goals and 11 assists in 24 games before an injury sidelined him for the rest of the regular season.

Mark and Brenda Carter of Carter’s Sports Cresting presented the Education Award to Ben MacDonald, who shared the Lorne Briggs Memorial Trophy as top defenceman with captain Cam McDonald.

Ben MacDonald, who also won the Jeff Myatt Memorial Player’s Choice Award, had four goals and 23 assists for 27 points in 50 games during the regular season, while Cam McDonald turned down an opportunity to return to the QMJHL to stay with the Ramblers and had eight goals and 28 assists. He also won the Community Services Trophy for his work with minor hockey.

Fredericton native Nick Cass was presented the Carmen Porter Memorial Trophy as top rookie. Cass came out of Midget AAA this season to scored six goals and add 12 assists in his first year with the Ramblers.

The Andrew Sweetland Trophy as top scorer was presented to Brock Morrison, who produced at better than a point per game picking 62 points in 51 games – including 26 goals and 36 assists. He and linemates Shute and Ryan Caswell finished 1-2-3 in scoring for the team this year.
