Former Mustang wins Acadia coaches award!

The Melfort Mustangs would like to congratulate former Mustang, Loch Morrison, who has won the Coaches Award for Men’s Hockey at Acadia University this year.

The Coaches Award, which is the biggest award for Men’s Hockey at Acadia, is awarded annually to the top female and male student athletes.

“As former Mustang Coach and Acadia Athletics Director, I was excited when Loch was recruited to the Axemen Program. He’s not just a solid Canadian University hockey player, but one of our top student-athletes off the ice when it comes to academics, community involvement and servant leadership. This was magnified during this difficult pandemic year, but rewarded as Loch received our Axemen team’s only major award this season.”

Former Mustang Coach and current Executive Director of Athletics and Destination Kevin Dickie added.

“I know Loch’s family very well and he represents them and the Mustangs so well. He’s a special, unique young man, with a bright future and I’m very proud of all Loch’s done and become here at Acadia.”

Current Mustang Head Coach and GM Trevor Blevins recruited and coached Loch in Melfort for the 2017-18 season and has great memories of his time in Melfort.

“Loch was always a quality individual as a 20-year-old during his time in Melfort. “We’re happy that he’s doing well at Acadia and we congratulate him on his Coaches Award!”

Loch was a former Mustang Defenceman who played one season in Melfort. He also led the team in scoring that year. Following his stint in the SJHL he’s been with the Axemen hockey program for three seasons.
