The Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) is proud to announce, Ben Hilhorst as the recipient of the 2020-21 RBC | MJHL Community Award.
During the regular season, each MJHL member team nominated a worthy player who made a positive contribution in their local community. All 12 players nominated displayed outstanding citizenship and sportsmanship both on and off the ice and a commitment to volunteerism. RBC graciously made a donation on each player’s behalf to their respective local school division.
Ben Hilhorst was selected as the top ambassador overall for his work volunteering in a number of areas throughout his four-year MJHL career in OCN and Neepawa. Ben’s community involvement included reading to children during school visits, shoveling walk ways for local seniors, providing assistance during community fundraisers along with supporting local businesses and much more. RBC will make an additional donation in Ben’s name to a school of his choice.
“Ben has displayed outstanding citizenship and sportsmanship both on and off the ice and an amazing commitment to volunteerism during his time in the MJHL. He is a very worthy recipient of this recognition,” Kevin Saurette, MJHL Commissioner shared.
Congratulations, Ben and thank you to all MJHL players who make a positive impact in the province. RBC is proud to support and recognize the outstanding work of all MJHL teams who enhance the communities they serve.
