North Bay Battalion forward Luke Moncada and local product Brady Lyle of the Owen Sound Attack have both been recognized in the Ontario Hockey League's annual Coaches Poll for the 2019-20 season.  

The OHL Coaches Poll provides member club coaches with the opportunity to recognize the top three players in 20 different skill categories within their own conference.

Moncada was named the Eastern Conference's most underrated player.  

Moncada had a breakout season with the Troops in 19-20, accumulating 34 goals along with 26 assists good for 60 points in 62 games.  He improved his point total by more than 40 points from the previous season where he finished with 17 points in 68 games.  

Meantime overage defenceman Brady Lyle made the most out of his final year in the OHL. 

The coaches poll ranked him first in Western Conference for the hardest shot and ranked him third in the West in the best offensive defenceman category.  

Lyle, who traded to the Attack from the Battalion in the fall of 2017, finished with 22 goals and 43 assists for 65 points in 62 games with the Attack this season.
