Every year the Grand Plains Minor Hockey Association awards a Peewee player with the Brock Pulock Memorial Award.
The award is given to the player who never gives up, always provides encouragement to the team and has the ability to help the team win games.
This year’s winner voted on by her teammates is Dauphin’s, Reese Boguski. It’s the first time that the 12-year-old won the award.
“I’m very honoured to have been chosen to receive this award,” said Boguski. “I’m really thankful that my teammates and coaches thought of me as a leader.”
“There are lots of very great leaders that played on this team this year,” said Boguski. “Anyone could have been picked but I’m very thankful it was me.”
Reese spent most of her season with the Peewee Ice Dogs and she also was an “AP” player for the Bantam Ice Dogs.
Boguski helped the Peewee team claim a bronze medal at the provincials in March. Way back on October 28, Reese scored four times in a big win against the Westman Falcons.
“Yeah, we had a very good season this year, it was really fun,” said Boguski.
Reese will now enjoy the warm weather and come the fall, she’ll be right back at it as she looks to lead the Ice Dogs once again.
“Winning the award will definitely push me and I think it will make me a better leader going forward,” said Boguski. “I really want to thank the Pulock’s for giving me this award.”
