TORONTO - Erie Otters forward Dylan Strome has been named the Ontario Hockey League's most sportsmanlike player.

Strome led the league in scoring with 129 points in 68 games and had a plus-47 rating.

His 32 penalty minutes were the sixth lowest among the top-20 scorers. He had just four penalty minutes in his final 32 games.

"This is a major honour," Strome said in a statement. "You look at the guys who have won this award in the past and it's pretty cool to be recognized alongside them. I'm extremely proud to be recognized as most sportsmanlike for this league."

Strome is the second straight Otter to win the award. Teammate Connor McDavid won it last year.

Christian Dvorak of the London Knights finished second in voting, with Michael Dal Colle of the Oshawa Generals finishing third.

Former winners include Wayne Gretzky (Sault Ste. Marie 1977-78), Kirk Muller (Guelph 1982-83), Brian Campbell (Ottawa 1998-99), Jeff Carter (Sault Ste. Marie 2004-05) and Brandon Saad (Saginaw 2011-12).
