Case, Heavenor claim hockey awards

Sarah Case and Robbie Heavenor will join a list of previous winners on the two major award plaques

PORT HARDY—Sarah Case and Robbie Heavenor will join a list of previous winners on the two major award plaques after being honoured last week during the Port Hardy Minor Hockey Association annual general meeting and awards dinner at the Civic Centre.

Case was presented the Hugh Fraser Memorial Award given to the association’s referee of the year. Case kept busy throughout the skating season, also serving as the lone goalie for both the bantam club team and the first-year Triport She-devils peewee girls program.

Heavenor, who skated for the North Island Eagles midget rep hockey team, was awarded the Brian Burns Memorial Award as the association’s mentor of the year. Heavenor overcame a midseason battle with mononucleosis that kept him from playing but rarely forced him to miss time helping the initiation-level peanut skaters, peanut coach Michel Therrien said.

Therrien, who accepted the award for Heavenor, also recognized the mentoring contribution of the winner’s sister, Emily Heavenor, to the club.

In a departure from recent award nights, no Player of the Year or Coach of the Year awards were given out. Instead, each team’s coach was presented with a gift from the association.
