Thanks to our inaugural alumni golf tournament in 2021 the Charleswood Hawks were able to raise some much needed funding to give back to our players in the form of annual scholarships. The club is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications from our current players for our 2022 scholarship awards.
Full details on the program can be found on the website under Alumni/Players > Hawks Scholarships or by clicking here.
The Hawks put an official end to the 2021-22 season with their annual banquet this past Thursday night at Breezy Bend Golf and Country Club. A special thanks goes out to Charleswood Hawks alumni and current Winnipeg Jets Senior Director of Hockey Communications Scott Brown, who acted as Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Scott did a great job challenging the team to the team to think about the importance of what it means to be a Hawk and to take advantage season to come with the young squad we iced for the 2021-22 season. Long overdue thanks to COVID, this was actually the first time in 3 long years that we were able to host the banquet and recognize our graduating players from those seasons.
The evening also gave us a chance to recognize our team award winners for our 7 major trophies. The winners were as follows:
Last, but definitely not least it should be noted that first year Hawks Head Coach Will Kinsman was recognized as MMJHL Coach of the Year on Sunday. After a very tough first half of the season, Will did a masterful job of getting the team back on track in the second half registering 12 wins to sneak into the playoffs. Congratulations Will! We can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the 2022-23 season!
On Friday night, the Charleswood Hawks season came to unfortunate end at the hands of their bitter rivals from the other side of the Assiniboine River, the St.James Canucks. The boys put up a good fight through 2 periods with the help of some stellar goaltending coming from Evan Van Laeken (who had 37 stops on the evening). However, the Hawks were unable to hold back the Art Moug regular season champions in the third who will now go onto the next round to likely face either the Raiders or the Vics. Putting up markers for the Hawks were MMJHL Second team all-star Ethan Lewis and Liam Foley.
