(FREDERICTON, NB) With the MHL Jr. A season coming to an abrupt halt it is a sad ending to his last season of Junior Hockey, but not his last time on the ice. Goalie Jack Grant has committed to Hamilton College in Clinton New York, a Division III Liberal Arts school. Grant plans to go into medicine when he graduates and is looking forward to the open curriculum of Hamilton. While hoping to take Biology and Chemistry courses, Grant plans to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree.
Hamilton College plays in the NESCAC division in the United States. “I was able to watch a few games this year with a few friends who play in the league and loved the competitive nature of it and the passion of the players,” said Grant.
Grant has played Jr. Hockey for the past four years with the Woodstock Slammers (‘16-‘17), St. Stephen Aces (‘17-‘18), Cowichan Valley Capitals (’18-’19), and the Fredericton Red Wings (’19-’20). When looking back on his four seasons Grant looks back on the memories and friendships that he has been able to create. “Being able to spend my last season playing at home in front of my friends and family is something that I will never take for granted,” stated Grant. The Fredericton Red Wings award Jack Grant with the Keith Allaby MVP Award at their recent awards ceremony.
President of the Fredericton Red Wings, Roger Shannon, is excited for the future that Grant has in front of him. “We are so happy for Jack and his family to receive such a wonderful scholarship from a prestigious school like Hamilton. Jacks goal was to always play NCAA and receive the best education he could. The Red Wings wanted to help him achieve this goal, and it was our plan from the start to get him there,” said Shannon. “Congratulations Jack, this is a great day for you and the entire Red Wings Organization.”
