The FPHL Congratulates Dakota Bohn of the Binghamton Black Bears as the recipient for  2023-24 FPHL Defenseman of The Year. 

Bohn appeared in 44 games this season for Binghamton.  He has recorded 16 goals and 35 assists, averaging over a point per game.  12 of his 16 goals have occurred on special teams, he tied the team-high 10 power play goals, and accounts for two of the team's short-handed tallies.  The young defender has recorded eight, three-point games, including a hat trick against the Motor City Rockers on February 9th.    

He has been a staple on the blue line this season, paired up with rookie all-star, Dan Stone, both products of Adrian College.  The pair consistently led the defensemen in ice-time.  With a +23 rating, there is no doubt the Black Bears will lean on Bohn in upcoming Commissioner's Cup Playoffs.
