Humboldt Bronco’s Trevor Posch has been named the 2017 recipient of the Hockey Ministries International Roger Neilson Award. The Roger Neilson Award is awarded to a player within the SJHL who displays fair play and dedication to the game of hockey both on and off the ice.
Trevor Posch is well-known around the league as the guy who is not afraid to stand up for himself and his team. Posch also has the incredible ability to score goals. In 3 years Posch has played 149 games, scored 53 goals and tallied 49 assists for a total of 102 points during regular season play. He has also accumulated 284 Penalty Minutes.
Posch was notified on the bus to Nipawin for Game 1, that he won the award and was not even aware that the coaching staff had nominated him. “It made me feel good about myself and obviously there’s a lot of great guys on the team, I’m just lucky to even be nominated,” said Posch in an interview with Clark Stork of Bolt 107.5 fm. When asked what he hopes fans remember of him Posch hopes that they remember him as a pretty good guy and his play on the ice.
As a 20 year old Posch’s absence will be felt, not only from the Broncos organization but to the City of Humboldt. Posch is willing to give a hand at any moment and volunteer his time to the community. 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 favorite 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 was happy for Trevor when I heard that he won this award. He without a doubt has left his mark on this city (Humboldt) and the organization. Because of the great example that Trevor has displayed, he will definitely be one that future Broncos will be compared to,” said Darcy Haugan, Head Coach and General Manager of the Broncos.
