Flames prospect Jakob Pelletier has been named the winner of the 2019-20 Frank-J. Selke Trophy, which honours the QMJHL's most sportsmanlike player.

In order to be nominated for this award, a player must "prove his efficiency on the ice while showing the utmost respect for opponents and officials."

The 19-year-old captained the Moncton Wildcats this past season and was third in team scoring with 32 goals and 82 points in 57 games. He took only eight minor penalties through the 2019-20 campaign.

Pelletier, selected in the first round of the 2019 NHL Draft, has played in Moncton for three seasons, scoring 94 goals and 232 points in 182 regular season games. He has dressed for 17 playoff games in his QMJHL career, posting eight points in the postseason.

The Québec, QC native signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Flames last September.

Pelletier's fellow Flames prospect Dmitry Zavgorodniy was also a finalist for the award. The Russian forward, who plays for Rimouski Oceanic, amassed 29 goals and 67 points in 40 games and only had six PIM to his name this past year.

The Flames signed the 2018 seventh-round pick to a three-year entry-level deal on Mar. 30, 2019.
