The Alberta Junior Hockey League announced the finalists for the 2019-2020 RBC Community Award on Wednesday, March 18th. Olds Grizzlys netminder Duncan Hughes is one of the four players up for the honours. The 20 year old from Rocky Mountain House has spent countless hours at Ecole Olds Elementary School helping the students with reading, writing and math, plus gym classes and the lunchtime milk program.
The Alberta Junior Hockey League and RBC have announced this year's Community Award finalists.
Throughout the season, each team in the league nominated one player as the RBC & AJHL Community Ambassador in recognition of exemplary commitment to the community.
20 year old goaltender Duncan Hughes from the Olds Grizzlys is one of the four finalists for the award.
Assistant Coach Pete deGraaf says Hughes is very deserving of being one of the finalists for the league's Community Award.
He says Hughes is also the goalie coach for the Bantam Elite female hockey team in Olds.
Hughes - who is from Rocky Mountain House - has won the Olds Grizzlys Community Spirit Award in each of the last two season.
The other finalists for the league's Community Award this season are Adam Sandstrom from the Whitecourt Wolverines, Taylor Makar from the Brooks Bandits and Brady Risk from the Drumheller Dragons.
