NOJHL announces renaming of its Most Gentlemanly Player award
Honour now to be named the David Harrison Trophy
SUDBURY, Ont. – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Thursday the renaming of its Most Gentlemanly Player award and, effective immediately, will now be dubbed the David Harrison Trophy after the NOJHL’s long-time statistician and historian.
Harrison has spent many years providing countless hours of service to the NOJHL with his tireless efforts in maintaining league statistics as well as keeping up to date both the NOJHL Record Book along with the archives of its member clubs.
“We at the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League would like to commend David for his tremendous assistance all these many years,” offered NOJHL Commissioner Robert Mazzuca.
“David’s multitude of behind the scenes contributions to junior hockey across northern Ontario have not only made a long-lasting impression within our league, but to all of member clubs, past and present, as well as to everyone who has followed the NOJHL the past four decades,” stated Mazzuca.
“With the renaming of our Most Gentlemanly Player award in his honour, it’s a token of the league’s appreciation for his incredible assistance and dedication to the NOJHL,” added the commissioner. “We look forward to working alongside him for many years to come.”
The recipient of the David Harrison Trophy Most Gentlemanly Player award along with all the other league regular season awards as well as the CCM Hockey first and second all-stars teams will be announced later today.
