D’Agostini receives Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy
Petes goaltender Andrew D’Agostini was officially presented with the Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy as OHL Humanitarian of the year this afternoon at the OHL Awards ceremony held at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
D’Agostini was the recipient of the award for his work with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and a relationship that he formed with 6 year old Anthony Romanelli, a Peterborough boy who has Cystic Fibrosis. Recently Andrew took part in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundations Great Strides Walk raising almost $7,000 for his team, Shut out for Anthony.
“Andrew is a true role model for the youth of our community” says Petes Assistant General Manager Aaron Garfat. “It is an honour for the Petes to nominate Andrew for the prestigious award and we are very proud that he was recognized for his work at the OHL level.”
D’Agostini is the fifth member of the Petes to win the award, following in the footsteps of Brent Tully 1993, Mike Martone 1997, Jeff MacDougald 2005, and Jack Walchessen 2011.
