Vancouver Canucks prospect Jonathan Lekkerimaki took home some hardware at the 2024 European Hockey Awards on Tuesday.

On Tuesday night, the Alliance of European Hockey Clubs held their eight-annual awards show and Vancouver Canucks prospect Jonathan Lekkerimaki was named Young Player of the Year after a strong rookie campaign in the Swedish Hockey League with Orebro HK.
"The winner of the @Fjallraven_Swe Young Player of the Year award is:

Jonathan Lekkerimäki @orebrohockey #EHCAwards2024"

The 19-year-old appeared in 46 games with Orebro HK during the 2023-24 season where he had 31 points (19 goals, 12 assists), ten penalty minutes and was a plus-six. Lekkerimaki also represented Sweden on home ice at the 2024 World Juniors, recording ten points in seven games and was named tournament MVP.
At the conclusion of his season in Sweden, Vancouver brought Lekkerimaki over to North America to play for the Abbotsford Canucks. He skated in six games for Abbotsford, tallying his first professional goal in North America before returning to Europe to join Sweden for their World Championship camp. However, Lekkerimaki was cut from Sweden's roster.
