Each Week we will choose a different Hawks player as "Hawk of the Week" based on their prior weeks performance. This could be a good deed on or off the ice, a solid performance on ice or great leadership. It will be a different winner each week. (No repeat winners)
We will announce the winner every Monday.
Week 1 - October 23rd to 29th
Our first Hawk of the Week winner is Oliver Grinnell-Brown. He is a goalie for U13B and has been coming to all the U11C Wolves practices to help our first-year goalie. Oliver is always positive, a good team mate, and is always willing to work hard and improve. Congrats Oliver and keep up the great work!

Week 5 Hawk of the week is U15B Black Goalie, Cason McSweeney. Cason is a dedicated Jr Coach to the u13c ice hawks. He comes to all their games and practices unless there's a conflict with his own team.

Cason joins the team pre & post game to celebrate and encourage the players.
Cason has a great attitude when showing up for his own team events like practice, dryland and games. He’s gotten multiple shutouts this season and has a GAA of 1.00 this year. The U15B Blacks are off to a great start this year in league play with a record of 4-2-4. Well done Cason, and keep up the great work!
