The Yorkton Terrier Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award was presented to Brent Struble.
Struble, one of six graduating 20-year-old Terriers, has mixed feelings about the award and the end of his three year SJHL career. “It’s a good feeling to get the award but I wish this banquet was a couple of months later,” he admits.
Struble came to the Terriers from the Regina Pat Canadians of the SMAAAHL. He had three good years with the Terriers. He played in the league final twice and were only one game away from the league final last year. While the Terriers didn’t go as far this year, the team did well. “We had a young team. I have a lot of hopes for them. I think they’re going to do very well next year,” he predicts.
At this time he’s undecided about the future. “I’m keeping my options open and hopefully we’ll see in the next couple of weeks,” Struble closes.
In addition to being named team MVP, Struble also claimed two other awards, including Playoff MVP and tied for Playoff Top Scorer with team mate Tyler Giebel.
