Landen Gunderson, Osseo Maple Grove

Landen Gunderson was named the 2016 YHH Wiz Wyatt winner on Wednesday's Ten Minutes with Tony Scott. Gunderson was a top player for number one rated Osseo Maple Grove as they won every game but one over the course of 40 game season. A great two-way player who plays great defense and is very unselfish with the puck. OMG head coach said during the interview that "Landen's passion for the game is what made coaching him so special." In the off-season Landen is a great baseball player. 

Gunderson joins a nice lis of former winners of the award; Grant Slukynsky (2013, Warroad), Brock Faber (2014, Osseo Maple Grove) and Tyler Haskins (2015, Rochester). The Wiz Wyatt award is handed out each year to a player who is a great player, leader and a multi-sport athlete. Wiz Wyatt is a former Harvard hockey letterman who was all-state in three sports in high school while starring for Minneapolis West.
