Standout Sudbury Wolves skater Quinton Byfield has followed up on being named Ontario Hockey League rookie of the year by being voted as the best freshman in the entire Canadian Hockey League.

The 2002 birth-year pivot helped the Wolves to a major turnaround season in 2018-2019.

After finishing in last place overall in 2017-2018, Sudbury surged to a fourth-place finish in the Eastern Conference in 2018-2019 and won a round of the playoffs.

And the 6-foot-5 Byfield did more than his share in the Wolves emergence from the wilderness by leading Sudbury in scoring with 29 goals, 32 assists, 61 points in 64 regular-season games. He then added 3 goals, 5 assists, 8 points in 8 playoff outings.
