NHL's Most Valuable Hockey Mom has been named, and she's from right here in Anchorage!
Autumn Makar has been given the honor of the first ever NHL Most Valuable Hockey Mom presented by Mass Mutual for all of her efforts. Autumn is a mom of two goalies, and has been the team manager of the Alaska Oilers for more than nine seasons. Also, she most recently brought on five players from Michigan, Colorado, and Russia to join the team, finding homes for them, and even took in two players herself. Congratulations, Autumn Makar, on your award!
