“There is no doubt that Steenn is a Division 1 player and this season he has come in to our team ready with a purpose to lead the Bonnyville PONTIACS both on and off the ice. This is a very difficult honor to receive with so many good players in the AJHL and the accolade reflects the elevated step he has made in his development as a player and will create exposure for him at the NCAA Division 1 level. He is big, strong and you have to be around him everyday to appreciate his outstanding skills and abilities as a hockey player. He is a great leader and citizen off the ice which makes him an ideal candidate for the NCAA Division 1 level.”
We are very proud of his accomplishment. Well done Steenn.
