2/26 Recap: MacKenzie makes the Donuts...

In the only game on the Tuesday night slate, Drew MacKenzie went 0-0-0 0 0 0 in Waterloo's 2-1 win over Chicago. With the win, the Black Hawks now have a three point cushion over the Steel for third place in the USHL's East Division. On a slow day on the sheet, let's shine on a light on a positive off of it. Reader response to this interview suggested that Brad Eidsness was a well-spoken young man with a good head on his shoulders. It appears the dedication that he brings to the rink transfers to the textbooks, as Eidsness was named the recipient of the 2008 Enerflex AJHL Scholarship.
The $1,500 scholarship is awarded to the player deemed most deserving among the sixteen applicants (one per AJHL team). Applicants were required to submit an essay describing what they have learned from playing hockey and how they can apply this in their lives after hockey. A Selection Committee composed of representatives from Enerflex has determined the recipient based on the required essay, academic performance, and the quality of reference letters from the applicant’s coaches and educators.
SabresProspects would like to congratulate Brad on his stellar season, both in the crease and the classroom. May you spend that $1500 wisely....on books and perhaps a shiny new laptop battery.
