Ottawa 67's forward Marco Rossi has been named the Ontario Hockey League's most outstanding player for the shortened 2019-20 season.

The Austrian centre led players across all three Canadian Hockey League major-junior leagues with 120 points (39 goals, 81 assists) in 53 games before their seasons ended early due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rossi, a top prospect for the upcoming 2020 NHL draft, is the highest-scoring European in 67's history with 185 points (68 goals, 117 assists) over two seasons in Ottawa.

The 18-year-old is the eighth player in 67's history to win the award _ known as the Red Tilson Trophy _ and the first since Corey Locke in 2003-04.

The trophy is named for Albert (Red) Tilson, a former Oshawa Generals player killed in action during the Second World War.
