Newhook scored 22 goals and 44 assists for 66 points in 45 games played in the regular season.
The Wenatchee Wild received three trophies and one non-voting award.
The Wild’s Jasper Weatherby picked up both MVP and the top scorer awards, Cooper Zech was the Top Defenceman and Bliss Littler won coach of the year.
A voting change from last year was noted in goaltending. The award is now voted on instead of going to the goalie with the lowest goals-against average and 1,000 minutes played.
Vernon Vipers, Ty Taylor, won the top goaltender award and Prince George Spruce Kings, Ben Poisson, won most sportsmanlike.
