TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, are proud to announce that Dakota Mermis has been named the team winner of the IOA/American Specialty AHL Man of the Year award for his outstanding contributions to the Tucson community during the 2018-19 season.
The captain of the Roadrunners displayed excellence within the community throughout the year participating in events such as the Roadrunners Give Back Tip-A-Roadrunner, Topgolf Classic and Roadrunners Community Days.
Over the past three seasons with Tucson, Mermis has contributed to many community tasks and is a favorite at each event open to Roadrunner fans.
