QMJHL names scholastic players of the month

Press Release

After compiling the latest school results, team academic consultants from around the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League today released the names of the Scholastic Players of the Month for January.

This initiative’s goal, which was developed by the QMJHL and its member clubs, is to recognize student athletes’ performances both on the ice and at school. The players are selected for their school results, their implication, the school-hockey conciliation, their team spirit and their on-ice performances.

It’s important to note that more than 94.5% of QMJHL players took classes during the 2010 Fall semester.

Here are the laureates for the month of January:
