The Winnipeg Jets were pleased to announce the winners of their regular season year-end awards prior to their game versus the Minnesota Wild on Apr. 3 at MTS Centre.
The first award of the night was the Manitoba Hydro Three Stars Award which was presented to Mark Scheifele. The 23 year-old has been recognized game-after-game for his solid play and emergence as a top scorer, currently riding a six-game point streak. Scheifele led the NHL in goals during the month of March with 11. He received the most ‘stars’ of any Winnipeg Jets player on home ice this season.
The second award of the evening was the North West Company Community Service Award which was presented to defenceman Mark Stuart for his commitment to our community through charitable involvement, school, hospital and community visits and other philanthropic endeavors. Stuart is actively involved in the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation, the official charity of the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club. Specifically, he dedicates his time to Project 11, an education plan for youth in Manitoba that focuses on Mental Health Awareness. This is the third consecutive season that Stuart has been recognized with the award.
Lastly, the Dan Snyder Memorial Award is awarded each year to the Winnipeg Jets player who embodies perseverance, dedication and hard work without reward or recognition, so that his team and teammates might succeed. Forward Matt Halischuk was presented with the Dan Snyder Memorial Award for the 2015-16 season. Halischuk embodies being a great teammate and person and leads by example with his work-ethic both on and off the ice.
