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 Eric C!
Eric is the type of player every coach wants to have on his team. Very competitive and works hard, just like a Grand Valley Twister should, but always with the spirit of sportsmanship and fair-play. Eric’s sportsmanlike conduct was on display at his most recent game and has made him our player of the week.
After the game, the opposing coach approached Eric to commend him for an act of kindness he hadn’t witnessed in years. Eric was charging hard down the ice displaying his trademark speed and fluid stride when he accidentally collided with an opposing player. Eric immediately recognized the other player had fallen, stopped during the play to assist his opponent, and picked up his glove to help in a display of true sportsmanship. Way to go, Eric!
Congratulations Eric, this is true Grand Valley Twister's Spirit!
