Local players receive awards

Submitted to The Local Press
Fort Macleod Minor Hockey held the annual awards night Oct. 2.
Midget retiring players, Brenndon Mackin and Tristan Martin, both of Claresholm. received Maverick jerseys for their final year. The past two years these boys played on a combined team with Fort Macleod and Claresholm.
Every year each team gives out three awards to players – most dedicated, most improved and most sportsman awards. These players are picked by the coaches.
This year our goalie, Jaylen Martineau of Claresholm, received the most dedicated award, showing up to every practice and all the games, holding his team in many games and always giving it his all.
Logan Fancy received the most improved player. He really stepped up this year and played forward when we needed, dropped back on defence when we were short, and wasn’t afraid to get in the corners and use his size to his advantage.
The Clint Jordan memorial award goes to a player from pee wee and midget. Clint Jordan passed away tragically many years ago and every year his parents present the runner up with a plaque and the winner with a trophy. These players are nominated by the coaching staff, then the board picks the winner.
This year Brenndon Mackin, of Claresholm, was nominated by his coaches and then picked by the board to win the award. The player nominated must display qualities of a leader in hockey, be a hard worker, dedication, sportsmanship and a team player.
