Twister's Player of the Week!
Submitted By hcassidy on Tue 12 04, 18
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 JR S.!

During the Pee Wee tournament, a visiting team's goalie sustained an injury and was unable to continue playing. As a result, JR was asked if he would be willing to play net for them and, thereby, enable them to stay in the tournament.  

JR agreed, and ended up having to face his own team!

This is an incredible example of JR playing for the love of the game while also demonstrating compassion and empathy for the kids on the other team who would have all had to go home disappointed if not for JR's assistance.  

Congratulations JR, this is true Grand Valley Twister's Spirit!
