  • Print

WINNIPEG -- The mighty Winnipeg Thrashers are about to stickhandle their way to another historic victory.

Mayor Sam Katz will present Outstanding Achievement Award medals to the 2011 national midget hockey champions this morning in a special ceremony at City Hall.

The medal ceremony is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. and is the latest honour for the Thrashers, who captured the 2011 Telus Cup Midget AAA national championship last month with a 3-1 victory over the London Jr. Knights in St. John’s, N.L.

The Thrashers are the first Winnipeg team to win the coveted Telus Cup, while the Brandon Wheat Kings won it in 2004. In 2008, the Thrashers won silver.

Connor Lockhart scored the game-winning goal in the third period on April 24 and was named the player of the game for the Thrashers, while goaltender Teagan Sacher had a stellar performance in net, making 31 saves.

The Thrashers, outshot 32-18, also got goals from Justin Derlago and Corey Petrash.

Along with the team’s players and coaches, officials from Hockey Manitoba and Hockey Winnipeg are scheduled to attend this morning’s medal ceremonies.
