Grand Valley Minor Hockey has begun an organization-wide
initiative where each week a top performing player in both hockey and personal
life is selected and honoured with the player of the week award and a
customized Grand Valley Minor Hockey branded game puck.
This week’s Player of the Week is Griffin P.!
Griffin lead Novice Green with his strong offensive presence scoring 11 goals and adding 2 assists in their first 3 games, helping Novice Green to a 3-0 start to the season.
His attention to the defensive side of the puck was quite noticeable as well. His determination and heart are evident throughout the game; skating down, catching up, and breaking-up the opposition’s offensive chances greatly helped in their fantastic start to the season.
On a personal level, Griffin’s tutor began experiencing health issues and Griffin asked his parents if they could help him send a get well and quick recovery card. Griffin is both a thoughtful young man and an excellent hockey player.
Congratulations Griffin on this accomplishment and keep up the good work!
