UAA Seawolves recruit Blake Leask of the AJHL's Bonnyville Pontiacs has received that league's W.G. (Bill) Scott Memorial Trophy designating him as the "Outstanding Defenceman" for this season. Below is the text from the announcement.
Blake Leask of the Bonnyville Pontiacs has been selected as the Top Defenceman for the 2012-2012 AJHL Season. The award is given annually to the defensive player who demonstrates the greatest all-round ability in the position throughout the season.
Congratulations to Blake on this nice award. I'm betting that we'll see more of him at forward here at UAA than we will of him playing on the blueline.Leask led all AJHL defencemen in scoring with 49 points and was second overall in team scoring. During the 2011-2012 regular season, Leask recorded his first AJHL hat trick, 8 powerplay goals, 2 game winners, and enjoyed 7 games in which he scored 3 or more points. Leask was awarded the Pro Hockey Life Star of the Game five times.
There'll be a comprehensive recruit update here following the season.
