During the final week of the season at Tabor Academy, Hockey Unlimited bestowed awards upon three of its young players. Goalies Zachary Pateakos of Marion and Jake DeMoranville of Rochester received Most Improved Player awards.
Tim Dyer, Managing Director and Head Coach of Hockey Unlimited said, “Zack and Jake each have shown that hard work and dedication can pay handsome dividends,” while presenting the awards. Dyer went on to say “Having two talented, reliable goalies in our program does so much to enhance the overall enjoyment factor for all involved.”
The Hutchinson Family Sportsmanship Award was presented to Robert Ramsay of Rochester. This award is named after the longtime Southeastern Massachusetts hockey family for “outstanding contributions to the program relative to sportsmanship and preserving the true spirit and ‘love of the game’ of hockey.” Coach Jim Hutchinson stated, “I am very pleased to see Robert recognized by Hockey Unlimited in this way. The sportsmanship and friendly spirit he brings to our organization clearly contributes to the culture we strive for with our young people – on and off the ice.”
Hockey Unlimited is committed to teaching the fundamentals of ice hockey to local youths ranging in age from 9 to 14 years. The organization just completed its 50th season. All sessions are held at the Travis Roy Rink inside Tabor Academy’s Fish Center for Health & Athletics.
