Guelph Storm goaltender Nico Daws was the unanimous choice for Western Conference most improved player in the annual OHL coaches poll.

It was one of three categories Daws was recognized in in the annual poll, which was released Thursday.

In total, six Storm players were named in the poll, which sees the coaches choose the top three in each category while not being allowed to vote for their own players.

Winners are chosen by conference.

Daws was also voted the best puckhandling goaltender in the West and the second-best shootout goalie.

Cam Hillis was also named in three categories for the West, finishing third in best playmaker, best on faceoffs and best defensive forward.

Pavel Gogolev was voted the second most dangerous around the net and second best shot. He was third best in a shootout.

Fedor Gordeev was chosen as third best shot blocker and Keegan Stevenson third best penalty killer.

Eric Uba was chosen third most underrated player.
