The Manitoba Junior Hockey League has awarded a total of $3,000 in scholarships to four graduating players, Commissioner Kim Davis announced today.
Tanner Lewis (Winkler Flyers/Brandon University), Carter McMurdo (Portage Terriers/Red River College), Maverick Rafter (OCN Blizzard/University of Winnipeg) and Brandon Holtby (Dauphin Kings/University of Regina) have each won a $750 scholarship to a Canadian post-secondary institution.
“All four of these players are being recognized for both their on-ice play and off-ice conduct,” said Davis. “We recognize that going to a post-secondary institution can be an expensive decision. These scholarships will assist our graduating players to pursue their academic goals. We wish them the best of luck in their futures.”
Earlier this year, a pair of other scholarships were awarded to MJHL players: Cody Ellingson (Swan Valley Stampeders) won the IBAM Scholarship ($2,000), while Julien Koga (Steinbach Pistons) won the RBC Junior A Scholarship of $1,000.
