He exemplified a commitment to our program on and off the ice and his play was outstanding over the past two seasons.” Melfort Mustangs Head Coach and GM Trevor Blevins said. “He also spent many hours volunteering his time with minor hockey and the elementary schools. This commitment is very deserving for a quality individual.”
