At the end of the season at Tabor Academy, Hockey Unlimited presented 3 special recognition awards. Dylan Parker of Plympton received the Most Improved Player award. Tim Dyer, Managing Director & Head Coach of Hockey Unlimited, stated while presenting the award, “Dylan has shown that hard work and dedication can pay handsome dividends.” Dyer went on to say “Dylan’s skating and related hockey skills have improved almost every session he’s been with us. We are pleased to have him on our roster.”
The Hutchinson Family Sportsmanship Award was presented to Coach Steve Healy of Rochester. This award is named after the longtime local 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, Jr. stated, “I am very pleased to see Steve recognized by Hockey Unlimited in this way. The sportsmanship, fellowship, and friendly spirit he brings to our organization clearly contributes to the culture we like to see … on and off the ice.”
Also, the Comeback Player of the Year award was presented to William Bullard of South Dartmouth. It was noted at the ceremony that William bounced back impressively this season after a nasty shoulder injury, which put him out of action abruptly last season.
Mr. Dyer further stated; “For the 54th consecutive season, Tabor has demonstrated consistent community outreach by offering our local organization quality ice time at a reasonable rate. The coaches and players of Hockey Unlimited – past and present – are very grateful.”
Hockey Unlimited is committed to teaching the fundamentals of ice hockey to individuals – male and female – of just about all ages. All sessions are held at Tabor’s Travis Roy Rink.
