In a poll conducted by swisshockeynews.ch, coaches and captains elected the 30-year-old Finn as the most valuable player of the regular season.

The coaches and players have chosen the best of the past season.

Michelle Karvinen received nine out of twelve possible votes in the MVP poll. In addition, she was also voted best forward of the season by the coaches and captains of the opposing teams with a total of eight votes. A logical choice: With three points per game, the Lugano forward is the undisputed top scorer in the Women's League at the end of the regular season.

Nicole Vallario of the Thurgau Indien Ladies was voted best defender of the season. She received six votes. Nicole Bullo of HC Ladies Lugano followed in second place (four votes).

The vote for the best goalkeeper of the league was extremely close. Eventually, the choice fell on Janine Alder of the Thurgau Indien Ladies. She received a total of three votes. Caroline Baldin (ZSC Lions), Saskia Maurer (EV Bomo Thun) and Alexandra Lehmann (HC Ladies Lugano) each received two votes.

Andrin Christen from the ZSC Lions was voted best coach and ZSC’s 16-year-old defender Alina Marti was chosen for her breakout performance this season. However, this election was also extremely close: Ten different players received votes, Marti was the only one to receive two.
