Posch Receives Roger Neilson Award

In three years with the Humboldt Broncos, Leduc, Alberta product Trevor Posch dressed in 149 games, scored 53 goals and added 102 points.

Never shy of sticking up for his teammates or turning away from the physical side of the game the rugged winger also picked up 284 penalty minutes along the way as well.

All that aside, the Roger Neilson Hockey Ministries Award is presented to individuals for their contributions off the ice.

As a graduating 20 year old his absence will be felt, not only from the Broncos organization but to the City of Humboldt. Posch is always the first to volunteer when it comes to community outings such as school visits and helping at the Soup Kitchen. Posch is a fan favourite and is often seen cracking a joke with elementary students on school visits. He also dedicates most of his Monday evenings to go play floor hockey with Humboldt Special Olympics hockey team and offers rides to those who need it after attending home games.

“I didn’t even know about the award but obviously it made me feel pretty good about myself. There’s lots of great guys on the team, I’m just lucky to be nominated,” he said during the first intermission of game one in Nipawin.

Every team had a nominee across the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, the coaches voted Posch as the winner.

“I just hope they remember me as a pretty good guy,” he remarked when asked about what his legacy will be with the organization.

“I was happy for Trevor when I saw that he won this award. He without a doubt has left his mark on this city and the organization. Because of the great example that Trevor has displayed, he will definitely be one that future Broncos will be compared to,”  added Head Coach and General Manager Darcy Haugan.
