The Peterborough Petes are excited to be recognizing deserving local minor hockey players with ‘Player of the Week’ awards.
Each week the Petes will recognize one of their own players, along with players from the PMHC, PHA, PGHA, and local adaptive hockey organizations. Selected recipients will receive tickets to an upcoming Petes game, social media recognition, a certificate of recognition, and other prizes.
Peterborough Petes Player of the Week: Nick Robertson
Robertson’s hat-trick performance in a 6-1 win against the Barrie Colts made him the first Pete to score 50 goals since Jason Dawe (58) and Mike Harding (54) reached the milestone in the 1992-93 season. Robertson leads the Canadian Hockey League with 50 goals, an accomplishment that took him only 43 games. He was honoured the second star on Sunday’s OHL Three Stars of the night and was the game’s first star.
Minor Hockey Player of the Week: Bryson Cumming (PMHC)
Cumming has been dedicated both on and off the ice and always encourages his teammates on the Minor Bantam AAA Petes. Despite what the score board shows, he always gives his teammates something to laugh and smile about on a regular basis.
Minor Hockey Player of the Week: Ty Vickers (PHA)
Vickers has been stellar as the starting goalie for the Major Atom A Petes while his goalie partner recovers from an injury. Vicker has been keeping the puck of out the net in order to keep the games close. Parents and teammates say that he’s been playing ‘lights out hockey’.
Minor Hockey Player of the Week: Piper Crump (PGHA)
Crump’s offense has been one of the factors that has helped the Atom A IceKats dominate in the playoffs. She scored a goal and registered two assists in a 2-0 series win over Scarborough. She continued to contribute offensively against Central York by scoring the tying goal in game one on Saturday and notching the game winning goal in a 1-0 win on Sunday.
The Petes welcome coaches, volunteers, parents, and other spectators to nominate deserving local minor hockey athletes by filling out this form.
